Jeremie, HaitiHaiti, it seems, is a magnet for disasters.
The Caribbean nation, with a long history of political turmoil and instability, is now contending with successive natural disasters even as it struggles to recover from a string of other devastating events, including the 2010 earthquake that killed more than 300,000 people and nearly wiped out the capital city of Port-au-Prince.
The death toll and injuries from the latest, and even more powerful earthquake that rocked this already fragile Caribbean nation a week ago, continues to rise. It was followed by heavy rains from Tropical Storm Grace that compounded the misery.
Haitians are now bracing for more difficult times ahead.
In updated figures released Sunday, Haitian authorities said they have now registered more than 2,200 deaths
