I'm trying to understand why in the reports that Haiti has been hit by 4 tropical storms in the last month, that no mention was made of the Dominican Republic. I know that the Geo teacher and I never really made it past aquaintances but I distinctly remember him saying that Haiti and Dom Rep share the same land mass.
Perhaps the Haitians took the cursed side of the island and built on sand while the Dom Repians built on solid ground, but that would just explain the absence of the massive land slides the Haitians won for themselves after playing the game called forest denudation.
The news reports lamented the fate of poor Haiti, and even said that Hanna sat on Haiti for 4 days! Now, if they were talking about Cuba I could understand because if a storm go north, south, NE, NW,.... it lick Cuba. Cuba just in di wrong place all di time. But is never the same part get lick all the time. But Dom-aiti ain't dat big!!! How Hanna decided which side was gonna get di floodin? Plus based on the news reports, all di disasterin was confined to the Haitiian part of the island. Apparently the storms tried to sneak past the Dom Rep and then let go full force on Haiti.
4 deaths in DR and 300 in Haiti. Did the DRians evacuate or something?
Do Haitians at the border bridge light from the DRians?
So if the Haitian side so salt, How come the Haitians don't run away to the Dom Rep?.... How come!??
