    Jan 12, 2010 5:17 pm US/Eastern 7.0 Magnitude Earthquake Hits Haiti, Tsunami Alert

    A strong earthquake has hit the impoverished country of Haiti where a hospital has collapsed and people are screaming for help.

    According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, there is a Tsunami watch for Haiti, Cuba, the Bahamas and the Dominican Republic.
    Haiti and the Dominican Republic share the island of Hispaniola.

    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.

    The NOAA says that there is presently no destructive widespread tsunami threat for the area, based on historical earthquake and tsunami data. However there is the possibility that a local tsunami could affect coasts located around a hundred kilometers from the earthquake epicenter. Areas further from the epicenter could experience small sea level changes and strong or unusual coastal currents, the NOAA said.

    "Everybody is just totally, totally freaked out and shaken," said Henry Bahn, a visiting official with the U.S. Department of Agriculture. "The sky is just gray with dust."

    Bahn said he was walking to his hotel room when the ground began to shake.

    "I just held on and bounced across the wall," he said. "I just hear a tremendous amount of noise and shouting and screaming in the distance."

    Bahn said there were rocks strewn all over the place and he saw a ravine where several homes had been built. "It's just full of collapsed walls and rubble and barbed wire," he said.

    Such a humanitarian you aren't.

    I hope the WORLD comes together for them. Its not the people's fault they are so poor.

    A Hurricane will prolly just finish it off sometime this summer. Stand by.......

    Haiti might just be the, "New Earth Butthole" for 2010. Hope that these people get some type of help.

    You didn't get what I was saying. But anyway. And yes I hope that these people are going to rebuild...blah blah blah. Why do WE have to fork over the money once again. Let some other country do it. The US has plenty to deal with right fucking here.

    Maybe I'm not a fake humanitarian like some. I'm just a realist. Out.

    MY thoughts are with them. I hope they can recover quickly.

    well, I hope people do come together to help them out and all but whose fault is it if it's not there's? Yeah they have a nasty government but the island has..or had, plenty agricultural resources and, if we're to believe that all men are created equal, then they have had the same ability to build their nation and create wealth that any other nation has had.

    Still, I suppose it's hardly the time to really get into such things. Prayers go out and all that.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    Leaving politics well outside this.... These are people with mothers, sons, daughters etc. No-one deserves this. Very sad news.

    This is fucking horrific.

    There are teams on their way now. Experts in the field, from all over the world. Find the websites of these groups and donate your $1.

    I have a sickening feeling that this is going to be worse than the tsunami of 2003, and that was the worst disaster I can think of. Ever.

    And to think, today i was complaining about the snow making my life a misery.

    A link to the bbc and some of the charities (that do not get govt help) who will be or, probably are, already getting involved.

    500,000 dead?!?! Dear god...that profoundly crazy.

    you know...in a really insane way, a couple generations from now, haitians and the world might be able to see this as the turning point in their nation's history. Perhaps from the rubble can rise a stronger, healthier more peaceful nation. For now, there isn't much to say or do...prayers and hopes.

    Wow! That was tough to look at. One second you are walking along and the next a 7.0 earthquake changes life forever.
