Hurricane Kills at Least Ten in Haiti

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP)--At least ten people have died in Haiti as a result of Hurricane Dennis.

The storm collapsed bridges, triggered landslides, inundated homes and blocked roads with downed power lines and trees.

Young Haitian men were charging two dollars to carry travelers and their possessions across the Grand Goave River, which overflowed and collapsed a 300-foot bridge. The collapse has cut off Haiti's southwestern peninsula.

A Haitian official says five people died on the collapsed bridge, and others are reported missing.

At least four people died in a southern town (Jacmel), while another person was killed by a falling tree.
