PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti -- The skies over Haiti's capital have darkened, and the wind and rain are picking up.

Tropical Storm Tomas is closing in on Port-au-Prince, where hundreds of thousands still live in tents and under tarps after being left homeless by January's earthquake.

Police using megaphones have been telling people to move to safety -- but the homeless have nowhere to go.

One woman who lives on a soccer field behind a church says she's afraid that if she leaves the tent city, they'll tear it down. And she says she doesn't have the money to get a home somewhere else.

Haiti's civil protection department has said those living in the camps should go to the homes of friends and family.
