After eartquacke happened several times in Indonesia like earthquake in Tasikmalaya and earthquake in Bengkulu, now this nature disaster also happened in Haiti. Earthquake in Haity with 7.0 magnitude struck shortly before 5 p.m on Tuesday, centered about 10 miles (15 km) southwest of Port-au-Prince, as US geological survey reported.

About 3 million of people or one third of Haiti's population were affected by this quacke, the Red Cross said. About 10 million peoples most likely felt shaking from the earthquake.
