How is the City of Leogane doing after Haiti Earthquake?

The town in Haiti that receives the most damages in the earthquake is not Port au Prince, but Leogane. The city of Leogane is situated about 20 miles outside of Port-au-Prince. The city was near the epicenter of Haiti's catastrophic Jan. 12 earthquake.
