Geoeye A Computerized Image of Haitian Earthquake Devastation

Geoeye a computerized image of Haitian earthquake devastation.  Geoeye is a computerized tool used with Google Earth that can be used to see the devastation caused by the 7.0 earthquake that ripped through Haiti a couple of days ago.  So far, there are many deaths and many individuals are trying to figure out how to help the Haitians.  Geoeye is the only way that many people will be able to see the devastation – with the exception of photos and images that roll in from the media.

Geoeye is used in connection with Google Earth to provide real-time access to satellite images of the devastation that has ripped through the island.

The Haitian earthquake is the center of a lot of speculation.  Yesterday, one individual said that Haiti has had a bunch of trouble ever since they made a pact with the devil.

Still yet, the world is sympathetic with the island, which is the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere.  In 2008, hurricanes ripped through the area and the people were just starting to get back to normal when the earthquake hit.

The Presidential Palace in Port-au-Prince was damaged, and many government buildings were leveled.  One hospital fell, and many patients and staff members are feared dead in the rubble.

Haiti has asked the US for a Hospital ship.  Many from the military and from humanitarian organizations are flocking to the area to assist.  Those that cannot help are making donations.
