    Hurricane season is about to get underway in Haiti, where many communities are still devastated by last year's deadly earthquake.

    Displaced residents live in exposed camps on flat land, sometimes near hillsides bereft of trees that were cut down for charcoal fuel, leaving people exposed to mudslides.

    Little has been done to help residents prepare for flooding. Pierre Louis Saint Juste, the mayor of the northern town of Gonaives, says residents will have to "find high places and survive on their own".
