Massive Earthquake in Haiti
(The worst earthquake in 200
years - 7.0 in magnitude)

January 12th, the worst earthquake in 200 years - 7.0 in
magnitude - struck less than ten miles from the
Caribbean city of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The initial quake
was later followed by twelve aftershocks greater than
magnitude 5.0. Structures of all kinds were damaged or
collapsed, from shantytown homes to national landmarks.
It is still very early in the recovery effort, but millions are
likely displaced, and thousands are feared dead as rescue
teams from all over the world are now descending on
Haiti to help where they are able.

officials and AFP witnesses said. A tsunami alert was
immediately issued for the Caribbean region after the
earthquake struck at 2153 GMT.
