Haiti is bracing for Tropical Storm Tomas, which threatens many fragile and crowded earthquake survivors' camps in the poor Caribbean country. Authorities have told more than a million Haitians to leave flimsy tent camps, where they have been sheltering since January's earthquake. The strengthening storm was expected to drench the island on Friday, which would most likely worsen a deadly cholera outbreak in the country. Jean-Max Bellerive, Haiti's prime minister, has told Al Jazeera that the government is doing all it can to provide aid and better shelter to the most vulnerable, but said it simply does not have the resources to help all of them. Al Jazeera's Sebastian Walker reports from Port-au-Prince, Haiti's capital.
