Updates: Leogane, Fauche, Grand-Goave and Petit-Goave Were Affected: Casualties and Destruction of Property

Picture Updates of the Areas Noted below: Posted on 1-14-10

According to some of my friends who have established contact with their family members via digicel, the very southern part of the country was not heavily affected. However, the effects or impact of the quake will be felt all over the country. If the head is sick, the rest of the body is also sick. Haiti has a centralized system of government. Everything happens in Port-Au-Prince. People travel from all the country to come to P-A-P.

The businesses, churches, orphanages located in Gressier, Leogane, Fauche, Grand-Goave, Petit-Goave were affected as those located near Port-au-Prince.

According to eyewitnesses based in Petit-Goave, the hospital suffered damages just like any other buildings around town. From Leogane, Grand-Goave, Petit-Goave and Miragoane, mostly coastal cities, damages are recorded. We still do not know the extent of the damages to private residences and public hospitals, schools and churches. In Leogane, Grand Goave, and Petit-Goave, some casualties are recorded. Churches and private residences collapsed.
