International military removed from locals during relief efforts in Haiti

GRAND GOAVE, HAITI — Two gray 23-million-dollar hovercrafts sitting in the middle of a sandy tropical beach look like they are from another world. A pair of 15-foot-wide propeller fans sticks out from the back of each behemoth.

Along the narrow dirt road to this seaside town's centre, families live under blankets stretched over sticks.

A tent city occupies the town's main square, surrounded by crumbling buildings. Joseph Jean-Pierre Salam, the mayor of Grand Goave, about 15 kilometers west of Port-au-Prince, estimated that some 70 percent of the city's important structures fell during the 7.0 earthquake that struck Haiti on Jan. 12.

"They have made many promises, but we don't see the action yet," Salam said, referring to the international community. "We have a lot of people suffering. There is an expectation that help will come."
