One Way to Get Rid of the Tent Camps

We've all seen pictures of the tent camps of Haiti on the news, and wondered when this phase of the post-quake disaster will be over.  For a few hundred tent camp residents in Delmas, it is over already.  The first report went out on Beverly Bell's blog, and an update from the Haiti Child Protection Sub-Cluster confirms that several tent camps in Delmas are gone.  Note I said the camps are gone.  I have no idea where the people are.  Police and bulldozers 'removed' the tents and all meagre possessions within from public spaces in the Port-au-Prince suburb on May 23rd and 25th.

Looks like there is something worse than living in a tent camp after all.  I pray it does not rain tonight.
