\”People will be moving out in the next hours and days,\” Beach said.

The camp was erected on Haiti\’s only golf course, the Petionville Club, in the days and weeks after the 7.0-magnitude earthquake clobbered the capital and other cities in the south, killing tens of thousands of people.

The nine-hole course swelled to an estimated 60,000 people but became famous largely because Penn assumed responsibility for the settlement as he founded J/P Haitian Relief to help people return to their old neighborhoods. via | Fox News
