My uncle is stationed there with the UN. I just talked to my Mother & Aunt, they have got word from him that he was leaving work when the earthquake hit and is fine, but his office building colapsed. Fuckin crazy shit. We're awaiting more info but it appears he's fine. Uf he had stayed at work much longer he'd be in trouble.
(CNN) -- A magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Tuesday near Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince, the U.S. Geological Survey. Several witnesses reported heavy damage and bodies in the streets of the Haitian capital.
There was no estimate of the dead and wounded Tuesday evening, but the U.S. State Department has been told to expect "serious loss of life," department spokesman P.J. Crowley told reporters in Washington.
