4.7 Quake and Torrential Rains
I'm told by a friend of mine who is coordinating relief efforts currently in the Jacmel region that a 4.7mag earthquake hit near Leogane on Sunday night and torrential rains came down as well. The rains truly complicate matters for the countless number of people and children living in tents. The geography is as you move west from PaP, you hit Leogane and the mountains, then Jacmel. Jacmel is a region that was devastated by the earthquakes, but initially was neglected as relief flooded into PaP. Continue to pray for the people of Jacmel.
