Port-au-Prince Lies in Ruins

Just before 5pm on Tuesday, January 12, Haiti was hit was a massive earthquake. Centered about ten miles southwest of Port-au-Prince, it completely destroyed several government buildings, including the presidential palace. More information can be read in CNN's report: Link

To anyone out there who has family or friends in Haiti, my heart goes out to you. Stay strong and know there is at least one stranger who is doing what she can to help.

I'm glad you posted this, Rachael. Even having gone through the destruction of Hurricane Katrina, I have to say that the images coming out of Haiti are more horrifying, sad, and disturbing than even what I witnessed first hand in the days and weeks after Hurricane Katrina.
