Haiti from Above

On Tuesday, January 12th, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck near Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince. There is still no accurate estimation of how many lost their lives. Some estimates have been as high as 500,000...the U.S. State Department has been told to expect "serious loss of life."

A photo blog titled The Frame has recently posted a series of aerial images showing areas around the capital taken by the American Red Cross and the Associated Press.

I have posted four below...to see the rest of these incredible photographs click this link -----> Haiti from Above @ The Frame.
