From Haiti, via Skype, Miami resident Robert Nowlan talked about what hes doing in Haiti to help the people there. He runs Project Medishare Hospital in Haiti, and says he's concerned about rainfall leading flooding, mudslides, and health problems like another cholera outbreak.
As people living in the Dominican Republic and Haiti get ready for what’s coming, it’s not going to be as bad as originally thought. Isaac is expected to remain a tropical storm as it passes south of the countries.
Some people arrived at Miami International Airport just in the nick of time.
"When you're in a Third World country, you're not really prepared for this so it's kind of scary," one traveler said.
From Haiti, via Skype, Miami resident Robert Nowlan talked about what he’s doing in Haiti to help the people there.
Nowlan runs Project Medishare Hospital in Haiti. It is also where 2010 earthquake victims were treated.
Nowlan's biggest concern? Rainfall leading to flooding, mudslides, and health problems like another cholera outbreak.
"The Haitians are a hearty culture," Nowlan said. "They have been through a lot and sometimes it’s just another day for them."
Nowlan said elective surgeries have been cancelled and patients who can be released are home with their families. Project Medishare Hospital is also fully equipped with enough water, food, and fuel to last for days.
And the organization Food for the Poor is already helping – distributing what's needed to 24 different locations with staff members in Haiti monitoring the storm – a storm that has many people in South Florida concerned.
"They're scared because they don't know what it's going to be. They don't have food. They don't have nothing," a passenger from Haiti said.
