Haiti 48 Hours Later

From The Big Picture:

Two days after the magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck beneath Port-au-Prince, Haiti, some of the massive damage is becoming more apparent. Rescue teams are arriving, aid groups are trying their best to battle huge logistical challenges, bodies are being identified, and some medical care is being given. Rescue teams from all over the world have joined the recovery effort, as the United States pledged $100 million in relief efforts. The Red Cross ventured an estimate of up to 50,000 deaths, as bodies at the local morgues overflowed into the streets.

  1. Some horrible pictures there. Photos of piles of bodies in the streets really just bring it all home. Broken buildings is one thing, but the sheer extent of the human loss is hard to imagine.
