More reports are coming in now from Haiti, where a 7.0 magnitude earthquake has devastated the capital city of Port-au-Prince. A few examples below from this BBC article suggest the level of destruction there:
Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive told US network CNN he believed more than 100,000 people had died.
UN chief Ban Ki-moon said the head of the UN mission in Haiti and his deputy were among more than 100 staff missing.
The Brazilian army said 11 of its peacekeepers had been killed and a large number were missing.
A spokesman for medical charity Medecins sans Frontieres (MSF) said it was able only to offer basic care to the "massive influx" of survivors seeking help because all its buildings had been destroyed.
I cited the examples above because they demonstrate that not only has this earthquake been devastating to the Haitian people, it has also caused tremendous damage to the infrastructure of international organizations already in Haiti who have been providing aid.
Needless to say, this is a terrible tragedy and the Haitian people and the relief services they rely upon are going to need help.
