Haiti Hit by Tropical Storm Amid Aftermath of 7.2-Magnitude Earthquake

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Officials in Haiti raised the death toll to 1,941 on Tuesday after Tropical Storm Grace hit the island nation while it recovered from a 7.2-magnitude earthquake that leveled thousands of buildings on Saturday. About 1.2 million people were affected by the quake, including 540,000 children, a UNICEF statement said. The disaster has inspired comparisons to Haiti’s 2010 7.0-magnitude earthquake, which shined a light on the heavy presence of foreign aid organizations in the country. 

Left- and center-rated outlets were more likely than right-rated outlets to prominently feature coverage of Haiti on online homepages on Tuesday. Some left- and center-rated outlets published articles on “how you can help” Haiti.
