PORT-AU-PRINCE, Aug 15 — Rescue workers scrambled to find survivors after a powerful 7.2-magnitude earthquake struck Haiti early yesterday, killing at least 304 and toppling buildings in the disaster-plagued Caribbean nation still recovering from a devastating 2010 quake.

Hours after the quake, the agency announced the death toll had jumped to 304, ticking upwards throughout the day from a first report of 29 fatalities. “We all know that we have a problem in Martissant,” said Prime Minister Ariel Henry during a press briefing yesterday evening. Images circulated on social media in the wake of the disaster showed people frantically trying to pull people from the ruins of caved-in buildings, while screaming bystanders sought safety in the streets outside their homes.
