Bishop discusses Hurricane Sandy’s damage in Haiti
Catholic World News - November 13, 2012
Hurricane Sandy, which claimed nearly 200 lives and caused billions of dollars of damage in the United States, also devastated regions of impoverished Haiti, according to a bishop there.
“Hurricane Sandy destroyed 70% of the crops in the Diocese of Jérémie and caused heavy losses of livestock,” said Bishop Joseph Gontrand Décoste. “We also fear a recurrence of the cholera epidemic.”
