Haiti: Destruction in Jacmel

“Prayers are needed all throughout Haiti. This is not over yet. We are still getting tremors constantly”: First-hand reports of the earthquake from Cody, a blogger in Jacmel, here and here, while Repeating Islands laments the “widespread destruction and loss of life in the beautiful coastal town.”

    My husband and a group of others from our area were in Fond Jean Noel during the earthquake and today made their way to Jacmel. They were told to return to Fond Jean Noel and stay there, since the situation in Jacmel is not good. I’m looking for more information about that area.
