'Haiti is on its knees,' PM says as earthquake deaths top 2,100 & tens of thousands of families left homeless

Men remove debris from a destroyed building after Saturday's 7.2 magnitude quake, in Les Cayes, Haiti, August 17, 2021.
Haiti has recorded more than 2,100 deaths following a powerful earthquake that wounded more than 12,000 and destroyed tens of thousands of homes, while over 115,000 families displaced by the disaster continue to seek refuge.

The latest death toll was provided by the country's Civil Protection Agency on Wednesday night, now putting the figure at 2,189 people killed and 12,268 injured, also noting that more than 300 remain missing since the quake struck last Saturday.

In a video address earlier in the evening, Prime Minister Ariel Henry said the earthquake put Haiti "on its knees," also vowing in a tweet to "personally" ensure that help gets to those who need it while insisting that his government would not "repeat history on the mismanagement and coordination of aid."
The earthquake that devastated a large part of the south of the country proves once again our limits, and how fragile we are.

Comment: Since the last massive quake that hit Haiti in 2010, the Clinton Foundation and USAID destroyed Haiti even more. All the money from donations that were collected to rebuild Haiti was stolen by the Clinton's and Haiti became one big "slave camp" for the psychopathic "elite."

The last quake was just another nail in the coffin of devastated Haiti.

An earthquake of magnitude 6.8 struck near the coast of Port-Olry, Vanuatu, Wednesday morning, triggering a tsunami warning for nearby areas.

The quake was triggered at a depth of 56 miles (91 km) and was about 12 miles (19 km) north-west of Port-Olry, according to the US Geological Survey (USGS).

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said hazardous waves were possible for coasts located within 300 km of the epicentre.

USGS had initially put the magnitude at 7.1 and the depth at 51 miles, but these figures were later revised.

Haiti death toll hits 1,300 as drone reveals horror devastation

earthquake
Drone footage has shown the devastation caused by a magnitude 7.2 earthquake in Haiti, which has so far caused the deaths of 1,297 people, and injured 5,700

The quake, which occurred roughly 125 km (78 miles) west of Port-au-Prince on Saturday, triggered landslides and the total collapse of two communities. Several aftershocks have also been felt.

Around 7,000 homes were destroyed and nearly 5,000 damaged, including hospitals, schools, offices and churches in what is the poorest country in the western hemisphere.

Footage taken from above on Sunday showed structures turned to rubble, and swathes of towns such as Les Caynes, on the Haitian coast, almost turned to dust.

A scene from earthquake-hit Haiti, August 14, 2021
At least 227 people have died following a magnitude 7.2 earthquake in Haiti. The death toll is a provisional figure and will likely rise, as buildings in several towns have been leveled.

Haitian civil protection official Jerry Chandler announced the death toll in a press conference on Saturday, hours after a magnitude 7.2 earthquake shook the island nation's southern peninsula.

The death toll will likely rise as search and rescue efforts continue. The United States Geological Survey (USGS) issued a red alert for estimated casualties, stating that "high casualties are probable and the disaster is likely widespread."

Haitian Prime Minister Ariel Henry has declared a state of emergency for one month, and said earlier that he would mobilize "all the resources" of his administration to help, while, in Washington, President Joe Biden has authorized a US response under USAID Administrator Samantha Power.

Buildings collapsed and streets were littered with debris in several Haitian towns, while the shockwave was felt as far afield as Cuba and Jamaica.
UPDATE August 15: ITV reports:
Haiti earthquake: At least 304 deaths and hundreds injured after 7.2 magnitude quake

The death toll in Haiti has risen to 304 after a 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit the country.

At least 1,800 others have also been injured as rescue workers pull people to safety from the rubble.

Prime minister Ariel Henry declared a one-month state of emergency for the country and said some towns were almost completely razed after the quake on Saturday.

He said he would not ask for international help until the extent of the damages was known.

Mr Henry said: "The most important thing is to recover as many survivors as possible under the rubble.

"We have learned that the local hospitals, in particular that of Les Cayes, are overwhelmed with wounded, fractured people."

The epicentre of the quake was about 78 miles west of the capital of Port-au-Prince, the US Geological Survey said.

The prime minister said the International Red Cross and hospitals in unaffected areas were helping to care for the injured, and appealed to Haitians for unity.

Mr Henry also said he wanted "structured solidarity" to avoid the confusion after the 2010 earthquake, when aid was slow to reach residents and as many as 300,000 were killed.

Among those killed in Saturday's quake was Gabriel Fortune, a longtime lawmaker and former mayor of Les Cayes. He died along with several others when his hotel, Le Manguier, collapsed, the Haitian newspaper Le Nouvelliste reported.

Philippe Boutin, 37, who lives in Puerto Rico but visits his family every year in Les Cayes, said his mother was saying morning prayers when the shaking began, but was able to leave the house.

The earthquake happened during the festivities to celebrate the town's patron saint. Mr Boutin said the hotel was probably full and the small town had more people than usual.

"We still don't know how many people are under the rubble," he said.

Naomi Verneus, a 34-year-old resident of Port-au-Prince, said she was woken up by the earthquake which shook her bed.

She said: "I woke up and didn't have time to put my shoes on. We lived the 2010 earthquake and all I could do was run. I later remembered my two kids and my mother were still inside. My neighbour went in and told them to get out. We ran to the street."
