A powerful earthquake measuring 7.0 on the Richter scale ravaged Haiti and its capital, Port-au-Prince, on Tuesday. The devastation is unmeasurable. Most buildings in the capital are unusable. And important structures such as the Presidential palace and the United Nations headquarters have been destroyed. Among the dead is the UN mission leader as well as the Archbishop of Haiti. The number of dead are certain to be in the thousands, and already there are estimates that more than a million people will be homeless, without food and shelter.
