UN Humanitarian Office fears food insecurity in Haiti following deadly hurricaneListen /
Over the past week, Hurricane Sandy tore a deadly and destructive path through the Caribbean and the eastern part of the United States.
The full extent of the damage is still being tallied but in Haiti, as many as 20,000 people have had their homes destroyed, damaged or flooded.
Dianne Penn spoke on the line to Johan Peleman, head of the UN Humanitarian Affairs office (OCHA) in the country's capital, Port-au-Prince.
He says because Haiti has faced a long period of drought, together with two storms in roughly two months, the greatest concern now is food insecurity.
