The fifth tropical cyclone of the 1958 Atlantic hurricane season, Ella developed on August 30 from a tropical wave located east of the Lesser Antilles. The system intensified into Tropical Storm Ella shortly before crossing through the Leeward Islands, and entering the Caribbean Sea. Ella later intensified into a hurricane, and was a Category 2 hurricane when it struck the Tiburon Peninsula (Tiburon Peninsula, Haiti) of Haiti. After striking Haiti, Ella continued to intensify, and made landfall near Santiago de Cuba, Cuba as a Category 3 hurricane. Ella rapidly weakened over Cuba, and deteriorated to a tropical storm less than twelve hours later. As Ella remained near the Cuban coastline, re-intensification occurred, and the storm was near hurricane intensity when it had another landfall on the southwest coast of the island. No re-intensification occurred after emerging into the Gulf of Mexico, and Ella made a final landfall near Corpus Christi, Texas on September 6, with winds of 45 mph (70 km h). Ella rapidly weakened over land, and dissipated later that day. There were no reported damage in the Virgin Islands. Many recording stations in those areas reported winds up to 40 mph (65 km h) and there was minor flooding damage in Puerto Rico.

Haiti's regional, historical, and ethno-linguistic position is unique for several reasons. Originally inhabited by the indigenous Taíno people, the island was first discovered by Christopher Columbus during his first voyage across the Atlantic in 1492. When Columbus first landed in Haiti (western Hispaniola), he had thought he had found India or Asia. His flagship, the ''Santa Maria (Santa Maria (ship))'', sank after running aground on 25 December in the north coast of present-day Haiti.
Gaining its independence in 1804, Haiti was the first independent nation (nation-state) of Latin America and the Caribbean, the second republic successful in a war of independence against a European colonial power in the Americas, the only nation in the western hemisphere to have defeated three European superpowers (Britain (United Kingdom), France (Kingdom of France), and Spain (Imperial Spain)), and the only nation in the world established as a result of a successful slave revolt.
With 10.4 million people, Haiti is the most populous full member-state of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM). The country is also a member of the Latin Union. In 2012, Haiti announced its intention to seek associate membership status in the African Union. It has the lowest Human Development Index (List of countries by Human Development Index) in the Americas. Political violence has occurred regularly throughout its history (History of Haiti), leading to government instability. Most recently, in February 2004, a ''coup d'état (2004 Haitian coup d'état)'' originating in the north of the country forced the resignation and exile of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. A provisional government took control with security provided by the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH). Michel Martelly, the current president, was elected in the 2011 general election (Haitian general election, 2011).
