Haiti Earthquake And Many Feared Dead

Haiti earthquake and many feared dead.  An earthquake that was a magnitude of over 7 on the Richter scale ripped through Port-au-Prince Haiti.  Many are feared dead in one of the poorest areas in the Western Hemisphere.  Shortly after the earthquake, a tsunami watch was issued within 100 kilometers of the earthquake’s epicenter, but luckily no such problems have been identified thus far.

The presidential palace and buildings collapsed in the earthquake.  A hospital was leveled as well, with patients buried beneath the rubble. 

The earthquake in Haiti isn’t unheard of, although it is the first major one to hit in 16 years. It is the strongest one to ever hit the Island.

France is scrambling to provide aid to this poor nation, as are other developed countries.  The people of Haiti live in poverty, and for many the earthquake means that they have lost everything that they have.

Teams of people from the US are also planning to deploy to Haiti to help with rescue and rebuilding efforts.

People are getting pulled from piles of rubbish, and are severely injured.  There’s no death count as of yet, but there are many people that are feared dead because of the Haiti earthquake.

      It is indeed my belief mesothelioma can be the most fatal cancer. It’s got unusual traits. The more I really look at it the harder I am certain it does not react like a real solid tissues cancer. In case mesothelioma is often a rogue virus-like infect…
