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.
