Hundreds of Thousands Feared Dead in Haiti

Hundreds of thousands? My word, that’s the size of a major U.S. city.

That’s what the Prime Minister fears may be the scope of the disaster in the poorest country in the West. When one considers that 63 died in the 1989 Bay Area World Series ‘quake, and 72 in the January 1994 Northridge (L.A.) devastation, an appreciation of the epic dimensions becomes clear.

Here are some places one may go to lend assistance:

Here’s hoping the Americans of Haitian descent who have been attempting to contact relatives and loved ones, hear good news under the circumstances.
