PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (CNN) -- Gale-force winds and pelting rain from Tropical Storm Isaac fell on Haiti early Saturday as daylight revealed early signs of damage on a tiny nation still recovering from a devastating earthquake.
The massive 2010 quake left hundreds of thousands of Haitians in tent cities, forcing them to ride out Isaac in makeshift homes.
Storm damage was apparent in the cities of Port-au-Prince and Jacmel early Saturday.
As night turned to day in the capital, Haitian radio reported floods and mudslides.
In Jacmel, on the southern coast of Haiti, power was out, and heavy rain and strong winds persisted into the morning hours. Damage to trees and houses was visible, and there was little movement on the streets.
According to the Associated Press: At least three people were reported dead. A woman and a child died in the Haitian town of Souvenance, Sen. Francisco Delacruz told a local radio station.
A 10-year-old girl died in Thomazeau when a wall fell on her, said Marie Alta Jean-Baptiste, director of Haiti's Civil Protection Office.
She said as many as 5,000 people were evacuated because of flooding, the AP reported.
