Hurricane floods earthquake-ravaged town

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) - Hurricane Tomas (toh-MAHS') is flooding a Haitian town that is already in ruins from January's quake.

The storm is battering the western tip of Haiti's southern peninsula. Families who already lost their homes in the earlier disaster are now fleeing another.

Haiti's civil protection department has told the 1.3 million Haitians made homeless by the Jan. 12 earthquake to go to the homes of friends and family. But many people simply have no place to go.
