Ike Lashes Haiti

Hurricane Ike tore through the Caribbean Sunday, becoming the fourth major storm in recent weeks to pummel Haiti.

The Los Angeles Times reports that Ike “destroyed already rain-soaked crops in Haiti and Cuba.” Its story also notes that the city of Gonaives remains in dire straits as damaged or destroyed roads hamper rescue workers’ attempts to reach residents.
