Haiti Earthquake Tragedy

By now, you must have heard about the 7.3 magnitude earthquake that hit the impoverished Caribbean island of Haiti yesterday. Thousands are feared dead and their country is now in the middle of total chaos. Haiti has never experienced an earthquake this strong in 200 years, it can be described as a catastrophe of major proportions. Buildings across the country's capital Port-au-Prince, including the Presidential Palace, literally crumbled. The destruction was really massive. All of a sudden the sad memories of the 1990 Luzon (Philippines) 7.8 MS earthquake came back, tragedies like these are just heart-breaking. 

See the news report below from Associated Press on the Haiti earthquake. Let's pray earnestly for our Haitian brothers.
