Martinor Gerardin, mayor of L’Asile, a town of 52,000 northeast of Les Cayes, said most homes there, too, were destroyed or severely damaged. He estimated that 50 residents had been killed and 500 injured. Scores of cows and goats in the rural community had been buried under rubble, he said, threatening the inhabitants’ livelihoods. No aid from the government or nonprofit groups had arrived by Monday, he said. “We needs tents and water urgently,” he said.
