Haiti braces for storm disaster

Gaston's approach worries quake victims, who are still living in makeshift shelters.

    Haiti may soon find itself in the path of a storm taking shape in the eastern Atlantic Ocean.

    Weather forecasters have said that Tropical Storm Gaston could become a hurricane and threaten the island by next week.

    But with thousands of people still living in makeshift tents after January's earthquake, Haitian officials say a direct hit from a major storm could have catastrophic consequences on the population.
