The beleaguered Caribbean nation of Haiti suffered a major catastrophic setback after a 7.2 magnitude earthquake, one more severe than the quake over 11 years ago, struck on the morning of August 14, 2021. 48 hours after the disaster it was reported that over 1,300 people had been killed, hundreds had been injured, and hundreds more remained missing. The epicenter was eerily coincidental as it occurred within the same peninsula as the January 12, 2010 7.0 magnitude earthquake, which devastated the capital city of Port-au-Prince and surrounding areas, and contributed to the deaths of 200,000 people.
 
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) reported the center was northeast of Saint-Louis-du-Sud in the Aquin Arrondissement. Several intense aftershocks have followed, including some more than 5.0 magnitude in strength.  Complicating matters is the impending arrival of Tropical Storm Grace. Relief and rescue teams are racing against the clock to find survivors and provide temporary shelter as Grace barrels towards the island of Hispaniola, which Haiti shares with the Dominican Republic.
