The death toll from a devastating earthquake in Haiti has reached 1,941 on Saturday- a rise of more than 500 on the previous figure. Besides, nearly 10,000 people have been injured, and many are still missing after the 7.2-magnitude tremor. According to sources, more than 100,000 buildings were either ruined or damaged. The rescue operation continues. However, the rescue work has been hampered by heavy rains brought this week by Tropical Storm Grace to the Caribbean nation. A magnitude 7.2 earthquake rocked Haiti on Saturday. The quake\u2019s epicentre was located 40 kilometres from the city of Les Cayes, with a population of 125,000, at a depth of ten kilometres. A month-loge state of emergency was imposed in the country. Tens of thousands of people left homeless by the quake had to decide whether to brave the storm under flimsy tarpaulins or risk returning into buildings damaged by the tremor and smaller aftershocks. The southwest of Haiti appears to have suffered the worst of the damage from the quake, especially around the city of Les Cayes. Some hospitals were left overwhelmed and in need of supplies, as medics struggled to treat the injured.
