Haiti may soon find itself in the path of a storm taking shape in the eastern Atlantic Ocean, as it moves farther into its own rainy season.

Weather forecasters say that Tropical Storm Gaston could become a hurricane and threaten the island by next week.

Haitian officials say a direct hit from a major storm could have catastrophic consequences on the population, thousands of whom are still living in makeshift tents after January’s earthquake.

Al Jazeera’s Sebastian Walker reports from Port-au-Prince.
