Coverage of the Haiti earthquake disaster relief
On Jan. 12, a magnitude-7 earthquake devastated Haiti, the Western Hemisphere's poorest nation. The international Red Cross estimates that 200,000 were killed. The relief agency says 3 million people — a third of the population — may need emergency relief. "This is much worse than a hurricane," said Jimitre Coquillon, a doctor's assistant working at a triage center set up in a hotel parking lot. "There's no water. There's nothing. Thirsty people are going to die."
