Earthquake Rocks The Island Of Hispaniola.

At approximately 15:53 EST, 3:53pm for you civilian types, a powerful 7.0 magnitude earthquake rocked the western part of the island, Hispaniola, devastating the capital of the country Haiti. Thousands are feared dead and news out of the area is limited as the power is out, cellphone towers have been toppled and what little telecommunication facilities that exist in the impoverished nation have seemingly been compromised. It may be sometime in the morning before news begins to trickle out and an accurate portrait of the situation on the ground can be assessed. No word have been received of whether the other nation on the island, The Dominican Republic received any damage or deaths.
