2010 A major earthquake rocked Haiti on January 12, killing thousands of people as it toppled the presidential palace and hillside shanties alike and left the Caribbean nation appealing for international help. The 7.0 magnitude quake, was the most powerful to hit Haiti in more than 200 years according to the U.S. Geological Survey. In the capital, Port-au-Prince, there were scenes of chaos on the streets with people sobbing and appearing dazed amid the rubble. The presidential palace lay in ruins, its domes collapsed on top of flattened walls. The quake's epicentre was only 10 miles (16 km) from Port-au-Prince. About 4 million people live in the city and surrounding area. Aftershocks as powerful as 5.9 rattled the city throughout the following days.
