The earthquake in Port au Prince Haiti

Posted By on January 16, 2010

I’ve been debating on how to archive the 2010 Earthquake in Haiti since there isn’t one article or report that has summarized the disaster appropriately. After Earthquake in Haiti96 hours, one thing that is significantly clear is that the loss of life in this poor country is tremendous — estimates of the number of dead range from 30,000 to 500,000.

No photo or news clip is appropriate, but it is safe to say that no matter the effort and actions being implemented, we’ll be too slow. Hopefully the outpouring of aid will soon make it from the airport in Port au Prince “securely” to the people who are thirsty, hungry, injured and homeless. My prayers go out to the people of Haiti and all the volunteers doing their best to care for them. I’ll include a FoxNews clip (below) of reporter Jonathan Hunt who has been on the ground for 3 days … and is showing frustration that aid isn’t getting to suffering people.
