Haiti earthquake 10 days on: survivors still 'hungry and thirsty'        G        25 August 2021

 

 

 

 

Haiti earthquake 10 days on: survivors still 'hungry and thirsty'        Video        Guardian News        25 August 2021

 

The death toll is still rising 10 days

after a catastrophic earthquake struck southern Haiti on the morning of 14 August.

More than 2,200 deaths have been recorded so far,

while at least 30,000 families have had to abandon their homes.

Many were sleeping on the streets

when Tropical Storm Grace struck two days later, bringing high winds and pelting rain.

But despite the hardship,

many Haitians are wary of the massive international aid response which is under way

If It Were My Home

 

The headlines tell a lot

about the crisis in Yemen:

internal strife,

evacuations

of international aid workers,

Saudi Arabian airstrikes.

 

But you may have

one very basic question

that you can't easily find

an answer for:

How big is Yemen, anyway?

 

You can look at maps

and check out Wikipedia

but wouldn't it be great

to just to slap an outline of Yemen

on top of a map of the United States

to get a sense of its size?

 

IfItWereMyHome.com

lets you do just that.
