Tropical Storm Adds to Haiti’s Misery Two Days After Massive Earthquake Kills Over 1,400

HeadlineAug 17, 2021

Tropical Storm Grace swept into Haiti and the Dominican Republic overnight, bringing heavy rain and winds, just two days after a massive earthquake killed more than 1,400 people in Haiti. Saturday’s 7.2 magnitude quake left some 6,900 people injured, and the toll is expected to rise. Hospitals report they’re inundated with earthquake survivors and facing a shortage of medical supplies. In the city of Les Cayes and the town of Jérémie, two of the most badly hit by the quake, roads were further damaged due to aftershocks and mudslides.
