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