The latest ( 7pm EST) Friday:  Info from Relief Net is quite alarming.

Today, Friday, is the day that Hurricane Tomas is expected to come closest to Haiti; winds are estimated at 80 to 100 mph.

See the excellent posting on Nov. 5 by Phil Palin on Homeland Security Watch regarding the sadly dragging recovery process in Haiti.  He covers some of the background issues on the organizations charged with recovery. More light and more attention needs to be paid to boosting the capabilities and efforts of the recovery organizations.  Not a satisfactory state of affairs regarding the international agencies and other organizations pledged to help with the earthquake recovery.
