A 7.0 earthquake hit Haiti this afternoon. An earthquake hits the tropics. There is a fault that runs right through the Dominican Republic and Haiti. That is why the earthquake happens. Yes, for the first time, there is an earthquake in the tropics. Will there be an earthquake in Miami?

According to a World Vision International worker, there is a lot of wailing going on and coming out of the shantytowns such as Cite Soleil. All the houses are flattened and crumbled. Even the best buildings, the new modern constructions suffer major damages. According to family members, many family homes, schools and hospitals crumbled.
