By Aaron Humes: A “deeply saddened Caribbean Community” (CARICOM) is once again moving to support sister nation Haiti following a magnitude 7.2 earthquake which struck 24 hours ago and is reported to have killed thousands.
The Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) is in contact with Haiti’s Civil Protection Agency which is assessing the damage.
Homes, other buildings and infrastructure have been destroyed, particularly in the southwestern cities of Les Cayes and Jeremie.
The Chairman of CARICOM Gaston Browne, Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda, has held discussions with the Prime Minister of Haiti, Ariel Henry, and has assured him that CARICOM stands ready to assist.
Prime Minister Browne extended his sympathy to Prime Minister Henry and to the people of Haiti on the loss of life, and expressed his wishes for a full and speedy recovery of the injured.
