BK Haitians worried as Tropical Storm Emily takes aim at Haiti

BROOKLYN - As Tropical Storm Emily churns in the Caribbean toward the island nation of Haiti, Brooklyn Haitians are worried for loved ones who remain in the struggling country.

The storm is expected to hit the island by Thursday.

Hundreds of thousands of Haitians still live in tents after the nation was struck by a devastating earthquake in early 2010.

Local radio stations have been urging residents with loved ones in Haiti to contact them before the storm since many may not have any other way of knowing a storm is heading toward the island.
