Floods intensified as Haiti battled against the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and the swollen rivers. The Gray River was swollen by pounding rain from the storm which has killed 31 across the Caribbean, including 16 Haiti. The Hurricane which has caused mass destruction, flooding and death is now posing a massive threat to the U.S East Coast. Forecasters warned the late-season storm could combine with a polar air mass near the United States next week, potentially producing a highly unusual and potent storm that could cause severe damage along the U.S East Coast. Sandy is forecast to remain a Category 1 hurricane as it continues to move over the Bahamas on Friday, sending swirling rains and winds across several hundred miles.
