Update Sept.25/2010 from Haiti (Survived the storm)

We are safe and grateful to back in Jacmel after a day in Port au Prince yesterday... we took the Minneapolis team back for their flight and while we were there there was an up expected storm come up.. it must of been part of a hurricane as the winds were tearing off the corrugated steel of buildings and fences and tossing it like Frisbee's .. the rain was coming down sideways with visibility only a matter of meters...the report we got was 5 people were killed and a number of others injured.. Pastor was separated from us picking up something from the hospital... he had these huge sheets of steel flying over him as he was running for cover... even many of the patients left the hospital as they feared an earthquake was going to happen...the roads were partly blocked on the way back home during the night from the landslides... it took over 4 hrs. to get out of Port au Prince... the storm hit Jacmel but not as sever...
Thanks for your support.
