Yesterday at 1653 local time (2153 GMT) an earthquake measuring 7.0 on the Richter scale struck about 15 kilometers southwest of the Haitian capital, Port-au-Prince.
BBC: Mike Blanpied of the US Geological Survey said that, based on the location and size of the "shallow" quake, about three million people would have been severely shaken by its impact.
MSF: MSF’s Trinite trauma center hospital, a 60-bed structure and one of the only free-of-charge surgical facilities in Port-au-Prince, was seriously damaged by the quake. At the moment, MSF teams are trying to ensure the safety and continued care of patients admitted to Trinite hospital and to establish a capacity to respond to new patients.
