Haiti has just experienced a horrible tragedy, an earthquake where millions of loved ones were lost. This earthquake was the most powerful to hit Haiti in century's, this all happened before 5 p.m. on Tuesday. This earthquake was so strong eastern Cuba could feel it strongly this was more than 200 miles away.
When this happened a huge plum of dust rose over the city and stayed like that for 20 minutes nothing could be seen. Hospitals, buildings, and houses were all destroyed. There is no exact amount of how many people dead or wounded but they think it's between 100 and 200,000.
The US and UK sent rescuers immediately after the quake and they have managed to save many lives. The US and international teams have rescued 122 people and the Haitians have rescued many others. Haiti was already known as one of the poorest countries and now they are looking to the rest of the world for basic survival needs.
