Carrefour and Leogane, Haiti, Considered the Epicenter of the Quake
According to eyewitnesses based in Leogane and Carrefour and according to one of my sisters, Leogane and Carrefour were heavily impacted by earthquake. The schools, churches, and hospitals were either destroyed and received significant damage. Some roads are impassable. Those who still have a car to drive are having trouble finding gas. From Carrefour, Gressier, Leogane, L'Acul, Dufort, Fauche, Grand Goave and Petit Goave, most houses were either flattened or rendered uninhabitable.
Some orphanages were also damaged. Some casualties were recorded too.
More updates later.
