Magnitude 7.0 Earthquake Hits Haiti

A Magnitude 7.0 earthquake has hit near the Hatian capital of Port-au-Prince. At least two strong aftershocks, of magnitudes 5.9 and 5.5 have followed. Damage is likely to be widespread and devistating. There were early reports that screams were heard as a hospital collapsed upon itself. Houses were seen crumbled at the bottom of a ravine above which then had once stood.

Tsunami warnings have been issued for Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and The Bahamas.

Cruise Note: Royal Caribbean's private destination of Labadee is located on Haiti. Freedom of the Seas had a scheduled call there today. I believe Labadee is near Cap-Hatien, which is about 100 miles from the epicenter. Someone please leave a comment with correction if that is inaccuraate

EDIT at 7:52 PM(eastern): Tsunami watch has been dropped!
