A 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti just before 5 p.m. on January 12, 2010 and has destroyed most of the capital city, Port-au-Prince. The destruction and loss of life is being called a “major catastrophe” by a top envoy to the country. The earthquake destroyed buildings throughout the nation, including the U.N. peacekeeper compound and parts of the royal palace. The U.S. State Department is reportedly expecting “serious loss of life,” especially as the dust settles on the massive amount of rubble.
 
The Red Cross estimates that over one-third of the country’s population has been affected by the quake. 
This morning rescue crews are scrambling to assess the damage, as first responders and new hands try to dig people out of the rubble.
