Default Earthquake in Haiti

I just want to let people who may not have heard know that a 7.0 earthquake stuck Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, followed by aftershocks of 5.9 and 5.5. I'll be keeping everyone in Haiti in my thoughts as they are already the poorest nation in the western hemisphere as well as the most densely populated country in this hemisphere. A lot of people here in Florida have relatives and friends in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, myself included, and there have already been reports of at least one hospital that has collapsed. I will be doing whatever i can to help them out and i hope more people will help as well.

ya, none of the buildings are resistant to any kind of earthquake, so far people have said the city is almost completely demolished. over a million people live there

I spent some time in the Dominican, beautiful but VERY poor. Hate to hear about the destruction there, this will take some time to rebuild that area.

Wow... I can't imagine a hospital collapsing, that's got to be rough.
