On January 12, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck near Haiti’s capital of Port-au-Prince, causing massive death and destruction. While the toll is only beginning to be understood, huge parts of the capital are in ruins and there are eyewitness accounts of “total disaster” and chaos.
An estimated 3 million people are struggling with the aftermath of the earthquake. Haitian government officials are estimating death tolls in the thousands, and thousands more are living in the streets.
