“Did you feel that, the earth is shaking a little bit.” my office colleague said to me when I came into my office.” No joking man, did you drug something? ” I reply to him with a cunning smile. Just thinking it would be a joke between office colleague, but when I turned on my computer and point to New York Times website, and I realized all that is damn true. The real earthquake has happened in Haiti capital.

“The quake, which struck about 15km (10 miles) south-west of Port-au-Prince, was quickly followed by two strong aftershocks of 5.9 and 5.5 magnitude. The tremor hit at 1653 (2153 GMT), the US Geological Survey said. Phone lines to the country failed shortly afterward.” quoting from BBC news.

“Haiti sits on a large fault that has caused catastrophic quakes in the past, but this one was described as among the most powerful to hit the region. With many poor residents living in tin-roof shacks that sit precariously on steep ravines and with much of the construction in Port-au-Prince and elsewhere in the country of questionable quality, the expectation was that the quake caused major damage to buildings and significant loss of life.” quoting from New York Times.

Sounds really terrible, until now according to latest news, there are more than one thousand people who have been confirmed dead. And even worse, in many undiscovered wrecked area, estimating it would be more people dead.

And our company now has decided donated some funds to red-cross international organization and encourage all the staffs donate by personal name. Though it is not a big help, still hope this would be in time.

Please be in peace in heaven.
