Yesterday, a magnitude-7.0 earthquake that was centered just 10 miles from Port-au-Prince crippled Haiti; this is the strongest earthquake to hit this area in over 200 years. Communication and infrastructure networks have been severely disrupted and the vast devastation of this disaster is still coming into light.
