Haiti Earthquake, Another One This Morning, Tuesday!

Haiti was rocked by a second 4.7 earthquake aftershock this morning, Tuesday February 23, 2010. Port-au-Prince woke up again in a state of panic at 1:26 a.m. to mother nature's terrifying alarm system.

If you don't think this is scary read this conversation between two of my friends on Facebook currently in Haiti:

Karl: Worst part of the aftershocks are the chatters, the shoutings you keep hearing, preventing you from going back to sleep! >:-[

Pascal: (reply to Karl) Ok, that means you're feeling these like I am. Anyway, try to get some rest. I'm in my tent with my sneakers on just in case I have to run. Bonne nuit.

Karl: (a few hours later...) Can't quite say good morning cuz it was not! Let's just say Hello!

Imagine living like this... even for a day it's too much!

Last night, Raynald Delerme told me about these "SHOUTINGS" people hear seconds before the earthquakes. He says: "Think of the noise of shaking a set of dominoes in a bag; multiply it one thousand times!'

When you hear "Aftershock" you may think it's less terrifying but it's an earthquake.

They call it aftershock because in Haiti's case, it's less than the main shock which was a 7.0 magnitude earthquake

The Tuesday earthquake jolt was centered 20 miles west-southwest of the capital of Port-au-Prince at a depth of 6.2 miles, the USGS said.

The news reports never seem to mention whether it is twenty miles in the ocean or twenty miles inland so we have so soon that is twenty miles inland.

Pascal, by the way, it my colleague Pascal Antoine from www.HaitiXchange.com, He is in Haiti.

If you have any more information please share it with us. If you are in Haiti tell us what it's like.

I have to go back Haiti one of these days but i am not scared.

We got to let it happening because we are living in the last days. We can do nothing to stop it, i know if we could, we already done something.

So, all we have to do is pray and beleive in JEHOVAH for the RESURECTION.
