In this Sept. 5, 2012 photo, a man stands on the wall of a submerged home to fish in Lake Azuei near Jimani, Dominican Republic, on the border with Haiti. The waters' rise has worsened exponentially in recent years, especially after heavy rains in 2007 and 2008 hit the island of Hispaniola. Tropical Storm Isaac dumped more water on the region last month, sparking more damage. (AP Photo/Dieu Nalio Chery) less
