    Haiti Hit By Massive Earthquake.

    The powerful Haitian earthquake has destroyed most of the capital city of Port-au-Prince, Haitian authorities said Wednesday.
    A top envoy called it a "major catastrophe."
    Haiti's first lady, Elisabeth Debrosse Delatour, reported that "most of Port-au-Prince is destroyed" and that many government buildings had collapsed, Haiti's ambassador to the United States, Raymond Joseph, told CNN Wednesday morning. Delatour said President Rene Preval was all right, Joseph reported.
    Rescue crews were racing Wednesday morning to fully assess the damage in the teeming hillside city, where toppled buildings killed and injured an untold number of people and trapped others in the rubble.
    About 3 million people -- one-third of Haiti's population -- were affected by the quake, the Red Cross estimated.


    Just scary, I was really shocked we didn't have a thread on this. Searched but didn't find it.

    Just horrible. Powerful 7.0 quake. Prayers for all those lost and their families here and there.

    Kevon, do you have family there?

    I can't believe I hadn't heard about this yet. God bless the families affected by this. Very tragic.

    No I don't have family there but I am from a Caribbean island. I have numerous friends from or with family in Haiti. If you guys want to donate funds the red cross is already helping out. I am throwing a $10 dollar party this weekend with proceeds going to aid Haiti.

    As usual, the US is one of the first to arrive on the scene with help. The US Army Southern Command is mobilizing already and heading in with relief supplies and help. Other countries from Iceland to Venezuela have pledged help. It's going to take a massive effort from countries around the world. So great to see countries volunteer so fast. God bless Haiti and all who live there. Sounds like quite the devastation.

    Wow, this is awful. They got hit so hard, so many times... 40 aftershocks all over magnitude 4.5. Truly catastrophic damage to the nation of Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Hispanola is a relatively small island, so I assume the DR must have been hit quite hard as well.
