Hurricane Irene hit Puerto Rico already, and is on a direct course and predicted to hit the United States by the end of the week. There are thus far no reported deaths in Puerto Rico, however more than a million people are without power this morning.
The Hurricane is likely to do major damage as it next passes over the Dominican Republic on the island of Hispaniola. Hopefully it will not pass directly over the western side of this island where nearly 600,000 Haitians are still homeless since the January 2010 earthquakes.
