Earthquake in Haiti

Port-au-Prince, Haiti (CNN) -- Haiti's capital awoke to increasing desperation Thursday morning, a day and a half after a devastating earthquake, with covered bodies piling up along streets and modern aspects of life, such as electricity, mostly missing.
The streets of Port-au-Prince resembled grainy black-and-white newsreels from World War II that showed the rubble of bombed-out houses in Berlin and London. The devastation was wide and often horrific.
A one-hour drive from the airport to a walled-in hotel where the CNN contingent is staying revealed the widespread destruction from Tuesday's 7.0-magnitude earthquake.
Flattened and severely damaged houses were found on every block, and the streets were choked with pedestrians and residents. They set up overnight camps and slept by the thousands in dark and crowded parks and on sidewalks, for fear of being inside if another powerful quake hit.
Numerous aftershocks have rattled the capital.

Right now I believe Haiti has no government at all. :\

What a great way to start 2010 eh? Let's pitch in and help.

It really sucks about that, it seems that every almost every end of the year or the beginning of the year, there's some sort of disaster.

I'm glad that the US, China, and other nations are helping. I hope they can rebuild as quickly as possible.

Well whiskermush not to try and start anything but Haiti didn't have much of a government to begin with. Alot of corruption was in it but hey who knows maybe this just might makes things change for the better.. we can only wait and see. Meanwhile lets try to help those that need it the most. Thats the least we 1st world countries can do.

As terrible as massive death tolls are, this allows Haiti to come together as one and throw off their repressive, vile, corrupt government. Perhaps some good will come of it. However, with the economy the way it is, I'm not sure the aid other countries bring to them will be enough, which is distressing. I feel bad for all of the families over here who cannot contact their loved ones over there.
