Haiti Earthquake- 8/16/2021
Monday morning update
Over 1200 dead- many missing- 5700 injuredThe main concern at this time is that Tropical Storm Grace is headed over Southern Haiti today into tomorrow. This will greatly impact rescue attempts, evacuations and shelter.
For those unfamiliar with Haiti’s geography/climate- it is a mountainous country and deforestation has made them susceptible to mudslides as there are few roots to hold in soil. The major road to bring supplies to the impacted region has been cut off due to a landslide and they hope to have it open today.
Please continue to pray and give.
