Trapped Gonaives Bishop Makes Urgent Appeal

Among the most dramatic and poignant news out of Haiti recently, we learned this morning that Monsignor Yves Marie Pean, Bishop of Gonaives, Haiti, is trapped in his house with about 500 people.

According to an urgent appeal from Monsignor Pean, Haitians “are today once again confronted with apocalyptical problems after the passage of the Hurricanes Gustave and Hannah. Further, in the next days two other hurricanes menace our people.”

We expect an updated story on flooding in Haiti later today as the country braces for Hurricane Ike.
