Bodies will be hard to gather from the wreckage, and many will stay buried for days.  Heavy lifting equipment is in short supply.  In some places, such as the slums of Carrefour, about 90% of the buildings are said to be in ruins.

The quake has been devastating for the area.  Those left homeless will be faced with new challenges once rain comes again.  Those fortunate enough to own markets were ransacked by looters after the quake.

People don’t know what to do with the bodies that they have found.  They are wrapping them in sheets and cardboard and setting them out, hoping that the government will do something.

Former Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush are said to be working hand in hand trying to piece together Haitian relief efforts.

Still yet, the Haiti death toll will not be known for weeks to come.  What’s sad is that there could be people still alive in the wreckage that will eventually die waiting for help.
