A View From Chattanooga On Quake-Ravaged Haiti

Earthquake damage in Haiti.
Miami Herald

The deadly earthquake that struck Haiti over the weekend traveled through the same fault line as the one that devastated the Caribbean nation more than a decade ago.

This latest one was stronger - but it will be some time before all of the casualties and all of the damage is clear.


Complicating the response to the quake:  Haiti is in the path of Tropical Storm Grace - while it is also still reeling from last month’s assassination of its President and another round of political turmoil for a nation that has endured generations of unrest.

For more than twenty-one years, the Children’s Nutrition Program of Haiti - based here in Chattanooga and the Tennessee Valley - has helped women and families to break the cycle of malnutrition in a remote, mountainous area of southern Haiti - near the epicenter of the 2010 quake, shaken yet again over the weekend.

Days before this latest quake, Dr. Anany Prosper - CNP’s Country Director - and Patricia Cyr Watlington, the program’s executive director - visited our studio here at WUTC for an in-person conversation.
