Haiti hit by largest earthquake in over 200 years

Is this crazy or what? Makes you think when the "Big one" Will hit CA.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – The strongest earthquake in more than 200 years rocked Haiti on Tuesday, collapsing a hospital where people screamed for help and heavily damaging the National Palace, U.N. peacekeeper headquarters and other buildings. U.S. officials reported bodies in the streets and an aid official described "total disaster and chaos."

United Nations officials said a large number of U.N. personnel were unaccounted for.

Communications were widely disrupted, making it impossible to get a full picture of damage as powerful aftershocks shook a desperately poor country where many buildings are flimsy. Electricity was out in some places.

  • Mrs. Owen's it is predicted in the bible code. (Google "Bible Code") I don't know if I really believe it, but it does predict a super huge earth quake in October. Is it true? Only time will tell.
