(Worthy News) – Tropical Depression Grace threatens to hamper recovery efforts in Haiti after a devastating earthquake claimed the lives of thousands as the system is forecast to dump inches of rain across the island.

The situation could grow more severe now that Grace has made landfall: The National Hurricane Center warned that despite Grace weakening from a tropical storm to a tropical depression, it still posed a threat. A tropical storm watch remains in effect for the island of Hispaniola, which contains the Dominican Republic and Haiti.

Current forecasts could see up to 8 inches of rain and isolated maximum rainfall of 15 inches in some areas, which could trigger flash flooding and mudslides, especially in the mountainous areas of the island, according to the Weather Channel. [ Source: Fox News (Read More…) ]

Haiti quake death toll rises to 1,419, injured now at 6,000

The quake, centered about 125 kilometers (80 miles) west of the capital of Port-au-Prince, killed at least 1,419 people, nearly razing some towns and triggering landslides that hampered rescue efforts in a country that is the poorest in the Western Hemisphere. Haiti already was struggling with the coronavirus pandemic, gang violence, worsening poverty and the political uncertainty following the July 7 assassination of President Jovenel Moïse when the quake struck Saturday.

The Caribbean nation’s Civil Protection agency on Monday also raised the number of injured to 6,000. [ Source: Fox News (Read More…) ]
