There has been an awful earthquake located 10 miles SW of Port-Au-Prince, Haiti Tuesday, January 12, 2010 at 4:53 pm. The electricity is out, there's no phone service, and this is a human disaster. (Data from USGS.)
The earthquake was 7.0 and the after shocks were magnitudes 5.9 and 5.2. There are many houses totalled, a hospital is destroyed, the UN building is destroyed, the castle is partially destroyed. It is a human disaster.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Haitian people, their families, and their loved ones. Many people live outside of Haiti and are worried about their families. They have no way of contacting of them because the phone lines are down.
Aid is on the way, and our Military is on the way to help. God bless everyone involved. If you would like to help, call 1-866-714-3663 for more information. (Courtesy of Bill Bennett.) Please keep these people in your prayers today as you go about your day. Thank you.
May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again. Digg!
