Even when the news was reporting this to be a strong storm I do not think anyone saw this coming. There are billions in damage across an enormous span of territory. I pray for all the families that lost love ones in this storm.

Such a destructive storm. Do you think these weather events are getting bigger because of global warming?

I think so. What else can explain all of these horrendous natural disasters?

Deputy Special Representative for Haiti Mourad Wahba says in a statement that many people have been forced from their homes and communications systems have been knocked out in the country’s hard-hit southwestern peninsula. He says at least 10,000 people are in shelters.

Immediately after the impact, the most devastated area, the southern peninsula of the country, was without any means of communication; people were left with no shelter, food, and clean water. A grave humanitarian crisis that could get even more complicated if the sanitation conditions worsen. In the midst of the hurricane, the calls for aid were already taking place. More strikingly, all kinds of people were getting out of their way, not so much to provide relief, but more to take pictures of people and destroyed buildings. All of a sudden it became cool to turn poverty, hopelessness and misery into a slideshow.

These poor people. It's so sad that as soon as these people come close to rebuilding their lives after one disaster, something else happens. My thoughts and prayers are with them.

It's clear that Haiti was the worst hit. I have family in Florida that said the storm was really bad. I really don't know how much damage was done to the Bahamas.

North Carolina was impacted as well. The total death toll now stands at 24 in the state, and the number is expected to rise when water recedes from flooded roads. Tens-of-thousands have been displaced and are in immediate need of aid. The Food Bank of Central & Eastern NC estimates that displaced victims will need food assistance for at least five months.

Where are legitimate sites to make donations to help with recovery?
