Disaster in Haiti
One of the largest earthquake's to hit Haiti in more than 200 years. Tore through my Caribbean land Tuesday, collapsing a hospital and heavily damaging other buildings. U.S. officials reported bodies lying in the streets.
The earthquake had a preliminary magnitude of 7.0 and was centered about 10 miles west of Port-au-Prince at a depth of 5 miles.
With phones down, I couldn't get in contact with my family today like most people. My prayers are out to anyone enduring the unsureness of family loss like me.
