Thousands feared dead after powerful Haiti quake

This is so sad. I pray that the amount they fear for dead isnt true. I hope more were able to survive.
Have you read this? (since I gotta ask a question)

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – Haitians piled bodies along the devastated streets of their capital Wednesday after a powerful earthquake flattened the president's palace, the cathedral, hospitals, schools, the main prison and whole neighborhoods. Officials feared thousands — perhaps more than 100,000 — may have perished but there was no firm count.

Death was everywhere in Port-au-Prince. Bodies of tiny children were piled next to schools. Corpses of women lay on the street with stunned expressions frozen on their faces as flies began to gather. Bodies of men were covered with plastic tarps or cotton sheets.

  • I just got home and watched the coverage on Fox. I couldn't believe the "White House"/palace. That is incredible. My son went to Haiti several times with the USCG and talked about how poor the people are and how polluted the bay is. This is just s a terrible situation.
