Post Hurricane Tomas
Hurricane Tomas begins to lash a devastated Haiti
By the CNN Wire Staff

Port-Au-Prince, Haiti (CNN) -- Already devastated this year by a killer earthquake and a deadly cholera outbreak, Haiti began to feel the brute force Friday of Hurricane Tomas, which could dump up to 15 inches of rain and trigger flash floods and mudslides.

The hurricane's punishing rain and wind were already being felt as the center of the storm churned offshore.

Hurricane Tomas Passes Between Cuba, Haiti on Northeast Track to Bahamas
By Leela Landress and Alex Morales - Nov 5, 2010 11:25 AM ET

Hurricane Tomas passed between Cuba and Haiti, unleashing floods that killed at least three people, as it moved northeast on a path taking it to the Bahamas and Turks and Caicos later today.

The storm, with winds of 85 mph (137 kph), was 90 miles southeast of Guantanamo, Cuba, and 140 miles west-northwest of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, heading northeast at 12 mph. It is a Category 1 storm on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale and may strengthen, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said in an advisory at 11 am. Eastern time.

“With Haiti being on the east side of the storm, that will be where the strongest winds and heaviest rain are located,”
