THE EARTHQUAKE CRISIS IN HAITI, by Victor Baines

February 18, 2010

May God bless the vicitims of the earthquake in Haiti. Words alone can’t describe the hellish turmoil of life in Port-Au Prince since the occurance of the earthquake. According to a new study by the Inter-American Development Bank, the quake damage could reach the sum of almost 13 billion dollars (more than most people thought it would).

I hope that the American government pays close attention to its activities in Haiti because it allow the United States to take a close look at dealing with the aftermath of earthquakes. In this way–someday in the future when there’s a devastating earthquake in California or the New Madrid fault-line, we will knowledgeable and expereinced in dealing with this type of crisis.

The idea of a huge earthquake occuring in the United States at some point in the future is unpleasant–but highly probable.
