Video of the Week: Earthquake Tragedy in Haiti

Yesterday’s 7.0 earthquake was followed by aftershocks of smaller magnitude but the damage done to the region was catastrophic.  The earthquake struck 10 miles outside the capital of Haiti, causing incomprehensible destruction in the densely populated city while those in Santo Domingo rushed out of their homes during tremors.  With buildings flattened and more barely standing, the amount of people dead or injured is yet unclear but is estimated to be in the thousands.

According to an article on Live Science, there are reports of escaped inmates after the main prison in the capital collapsed today.  Another article from ABC talks about Disaster Relief.

Here is a PhotoEssay from today and yesterday.  Thinking of those effected by this disaster.
