    Haiti earthquake

    Post by Invictus on Sat Jan 16, 2010 6:10 pm

    The 2010 Haiti Earthquake was a catastrophic magnitude 7.0 Mw earthquake centred approximately 25 kilometres (16 mi) west of Port-au-Prince, the capital of Haiti, striking at 16:53:09 local time (21:53:09 UTC) on Tuesday, 12 January 2010.The earthquake occurred at a depth of 13 kilometres (8.1 mi). The United States Geological Survey recorded a series of aftershocks, fourteen of them between magnitudes 5.0 and 5.9. The International Red Cross estimated that about three million people were affected by the quake, and the Haitian Interior Minister believes that up to 200,000 could be dead, exceeding earlier Red Cross estimates of 45,000–50,000 people killed.A number of prominent public figures are among the dead.

    true that the haiti event affected a lot of ppl worldwide, but headed for 2012?
    Probably too soon to say..
    And anyways if people believed 2012 is gonna happen, what happened to like
    judgement day in 2000? I'm not saying it can't, but I highly doubt it would.

    Also, wasn't there event about demolishing poverty and such ?
    That never happened and it's increasing too so....
