A powerful earthquake tore through Haiti Tuesday night, leaving devastation in its wake. The dead and injured lay in the streets even as strong aftershocks continued in what was the biggest quake to hit Haiti in more than 200 years.

A 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti's capital yesterday, the most powerful quake to hit Haiti in more than 200 years. Tens of thousands of people have lost their homes, countless have perished, and many of the normally flimsy and dangerous buildings in Haiti lay in ruins. For the latest on the story, we talk with Jacqueline Charles, a reporter with the Miami Herald, Laurent Dubois, a professor at Duke University, and Franz Neptune, who drives a car for the Haiti Foundation Against Poverty in Port-au-Prince, about the devastation and what this means for the Caribbean nation.
