photos - floods - evacuations

Once the water levels started to recede people came down from the rooftops and started heading out looking for food or just to escape the flooding in the city of Gonaives.

The UN military helped in rescuing people from the flooded areas.

It is difficult for the handicapped to move through the flooded areas.

People had to wade through the flood waters. This man is carrying a child on his shoulders.

Many elderly and children died when they couldn't move fast enough to get away from the flood waters. These series of photos were all taken from the internet
