Magnitude-7.0 Earthquake Devastates Impoverished Country of Haiti. You Can Help!
A strong earthquake hit the impoverished country of Haiti this afternoon, where a hospital collapsed and people were screaming for help. Other buildings also were damaged.
The earthquake had a preliminary magnitude of 7.0 and was centered about 14 miles (22 kilometers) west from the capital of Port-au-Prince, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
An Associated Press videographer saw the wrecked hospital in nearby Petionville, and a U.S. government official reported seeing houses that had tumbled into a ravine. Let us pray for our brothers and sisters in Haiti and do all that we can, wherever we are to help!
