  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Hurricane Elsa batters the Caribbean and heads towards Haiti” – below is their description.

    Hurricane Elsa hit the Caribbean on Saturday, bringing powerful winds and threatening to pile further misery on violence-wracked Haiti.

    In parts of the Eastern Caribbean, officials closed schools, businesses and airports.

    The Category 1 storm has unleashed heavy rain and winds in St Vincent and the Grenadines, which is still struggling to recover from recent massive volcanic eruptions.

    Authorities opened dozens of shelters and urged people to evacuate if they lived near a valley, given the threat of flash flooding, mudslides and volcanic mudflows, especially in the northern part of the island where La Soufrière volcano is located.

    It also reached Barbados – the first hurricane to hit the island in over 60 years.

  • In This Story: Haiti

    Haiti is a Caribbean country that shares the island of Hispaniola with the Dominican Republic to its east. Though it’s still recovering from a 2010 earthquake, many of Haiti’s landmarks dating to the early 19th century remain intact. These include Citadelle la Ferrière, a mountaintop fortress.

    Jean-Jacques Dessalines (later Emperor Jacques I), defeated Napoleon Bonaparte’s forces and declared Haiti’s sovereignty on 1 January 1804.

    Haiti became the only state in history established by a successful slave revolt. Apart from Alexandre Pétion, the first President of the Republic, all of Haiti’s first leaders were former slaves.
