On Saturday, October 6, at about 8:11 PM a 5.9 magnitude earthquake struck northwest Haiti, its epicenter about 11 miles outside the city of Port-de-Paix. It was followed by strong aftershocks that were felt as far away as Port-au-Prince, Haiti's capital. So far, seventeen people have died; 353 houses were destroyed; and 7430, damaged. However, with time these figures will probably rise.
Ten USA-Haiti province participants had the great fortune of attending the Symposium, JM: Jesus and Mary, 200 Years of Faith and Hope, held from October 4 - 6 in Lyon, France.
