In case you haven’t heard about it, there was a MASSIVE earthquake in Haiti, that killed thousands of people and damaged thousands more; leaving people homeless instantly.
The 2010 Haiti earthquake was a catastrophic magnitude 7.0 Mw earthquake centered approximately 25 kilometres (16 mi) from Port-au-Prince, the capital of Haiti, which struck at 16:53:09 local time (21:53:09 UTC) on Tuesday, 12 January 2010. The earthquake occurred at a depth of 13 kilometres (8.1 mi). The United States Geological Survey recorded a series of aftershocks, fourteen of them between magnitudes 5.0 and 5.9. The International Red Cross estimates that about three million people were affected by the quake, and about 45,000–50,000 people were killed.
