The destruction

Here are some photographs taken soon after the earthquake.  The photos are not mine and if there is a problem with using them here, please let me know.  From what I understand, the building codes in Haiti were designed to withstand hurricanes, not earthquakes.  These pictures are to give some appreciation of the incredible destruction from the earthquake in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere wherre there is very little infrastructure.
