The Prime Minister of Haiti has declared month-long state of emergency after earthquake hits country.

Currently, the death toll stands at over 2000 as neighbouring countries rush to send aid and rescuers search for survivors.

The 7.2-magnitude earthquake struck on Saturday at 8.29am local time.

The quake was felt across the Caribbean and rekindled painful memories of the devastating 2010 quake that killed more than 200,000 people.

Homes, churches and schools were among buildings flattened in the quake. Some hospitals were left overwhelmed and in need of supplies.

The US president, Joe Biden, authorised an immediate response and named Samantha Power as the senior official coordinating the US effort to help Haiti.
