Tropical storm Isaac hits Haiti


Gale-force winds and driving rain are lashing Haiti as Tropical Storm Isaac crosses the Caribbean state.

The US National Hurricane Centre says the heavy rainfall is a "major threat" and may cause floods and mudslides.

Aid groups warn that some 400,000 Haitians still living in makeshift camps after the deadly earthquake of 2010 are extremely vulnerable.
