In this Sept. 6, 2012 photo, children stand on the shores of Lake Azuei near a submerged hotel in Thomazeau, Haiti, near the border with the Dominican Republic. 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
