    Photos taken shortly after the earthquake showing the devestation ... *caution* some blood and injured including the dead. The last photo is most poignant.

    Interesting video of a dog sensing an earthquake just moments before it happens... not in haiti but still probably what happened on the island in the city. See how dog just tears on outta there!

    Same here.... websites aren't working.

    Cats could sense the earthquake few days before it happen, by their odd behavior such as running in circle or hiding in the dark spot.

    First U.S. military aid reaches quake-stricken Haiti
    As promised by Obama for immediate military aid to Haiti, here it is... Proud to know that we Americans are there to help them - whatever the cost.

    I've been through several earthquakes. You usually get a sense of earthquake coming. It starts with tiny tremors and just few seconds later, it shakes violently. I literally thought I was going to be killed but thanks to California's strict regulations on building codes, so many people survived. Without the CA regulations, several times more people would have died.

    Did you guys notice how in the first vid of the first post the dog sensed the quake at least 5 seconds before it hit?

    Hmm I wonder if the dog is okay.

    Yea alotta animals can sense some things ahead before humans do.

    sounds like its one of the worst earth quakes ever to hit, maybe?

    During earthquakes, its always MUCH safer to be outside than inside, obviously.

    President Obama sends help to Haiti almost immediately after they heard the news which is a good thing...compared to ex president bush, he only sent help afew days later after the flood hit new orleans but yeah their help wasn't really good enough.

    so I dont know about how much help Obama is giving but at least he sent help right on time after it happened.
