The death toll from Tropical Storm Jeanne is rising in Haiti. Massive flooding buried the city of Gonaives in knee-deep mud, destroying homes and killing more than 1,000 people. Hundreds more are missing. Hear NPR's Renee Montagne and U.N. official Eric Mouillefarine.

Correction Sept. 27, 2004

The audio of this story should have made clear that Jeanne was a tropical storm when it struck Haiti.
