PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — The Haitian government says at least 24 people have died in accidents related to Tropical Storm Isaac.

Haiti's Civil Protection Office said in a report Tuesday that the bulk of the deaths happened in the southeastern and western departments of the country.

Some of the victims were electrocuted and others died after objects fell on them. Three people are missing.

The death toll has steadily increased in Haiti after Tropical Storm Isaac passed over the southern part of the country Saturday and caused extensive flooding.

Haiti's mountains are heavily deforested and so the country is prone to mudslides that sometimes turn fatal.

The new deaths put the total death toll of Isaac at 29. Five people died in the neighboring Dominican Republic.

    2 questions: WHY aren’t there better living conditions for the people of Haiti after all of the money that was raised for them after the earthquake a couple of years ago? and WHERE is the MILLION$ of Dollar$ what was raised for them? They should NOT be living this way!!!
