Haiti's earthquake epicenter copes with aftermath

Haiti's earthquake epicenter copes with aftermath:
"People here are proud that while the earthquake destroyed about 80 percent of the buildings, the loss of life was relatively small.
'We're not like Port-au-Prince,' said Jean Montigene, a school teacher at the Lycee of Leogane that was flattened during the earthquake. 'We don't live on top of each other so we were able to escape to safety.

While the central government in Port-au-Prince was reported about 20,000 to 30,000 deaths, people in Leogane put that number closer to 5,000 when all is said and done."
