Haiti Devastated by Quake; Scores Believed Dead
A little late in posting this: Our condolences to all those in Haiti. So mush devastation and death. I hope that the US steps up to help quickly and decisively.
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — Dazed and injured Haitians sat on darkened streets pleading for help Wednesday and untold numbers were trapped in tons of rubble brought down by the strongest earthquake to hit this poor Caribbean nation in more than 200 years.
Destroyed communications made it impossible to tell the extent of destruction from Tuesday afternoon’s 7.0-magnitude tremor — or to estimate the number of dead lying among thousands of collapsed buildings in Haiti’s capital of about 2 million people.
