As the dark clouds of Hurricane Gustav approach and the wind picks up, new violence erupted just around noon in the Savanne area of Les Cayes. Gunshots were exchanged between UN forces and the locals. People started running in all directions; markets, stores and businesses immediately shut their doors. Tensions are running really high right now and I just found out that the bridge leading out of town is once more closed. Pray for all the people here.
