At press time, Haiti was rocked with a magnitude 7.0 quake with an untold number of bodies along the devastated streets after the powerful quake crushed structures, schools, homes, shacks, and people.

According to an AP article, the International Red Cross spokesman Paul Conneally said a third of Haiti’s 9 million people may need emergency aid and that it would take a day or two for a clear picture of the damage to emerge.

The U.S. and many other nations are planning to send aid workers and rescue teams to Haiti in the start of a major emergency operation.
