From the Red Cross in Haiti: On Friday morning, as Isaac bore down, Haitian Red Cross volunteers worked with the government’s department of civil protection to move 1,000 people to safe emergency shelters and provide them with practical and emotional support. And although the storm diverted away from its path, the heavy rain and winds still took their toll on the makeshift settlements.
