A massive earthquake devastated Haiti on Jan. 12, 2010, reducing much of the capital Port-au-Prince to rubble. The death toll reached hundreds of thousands, while badly injured survivors roamed the streets in search of much-needed help. More than 200,000 people died, and at least another 300,000 injured people had been treated. At least 250,000 homes were destroyed and 30,000 businesses lost.
