Haiti’s Prime Minister Michele Pierre-Louis has said that a series of storms may have left as many as one million Haitians without a home. Pierre-Louis, who has called on the international community to more assistance, said part of the city of Gonaives might have to be moved. She said the whole country has been devastated by four storms which struck in just over three weeks. The problem was too great for Haiti to deal with on its own, she added. Haiti also faces a deepening crisis after storms destroyed much of the impoverished country’s rice crop, sparking fears of a repeat of the deadly food riots earlier this year that brought down the government, charity Christian Aid said.
