A trip to the last decade


2010: Haiti earthquake

On Jan. 12, 2010, the island nation of Haiti was struck by a magnitude 7.0 earthquake, leaving hundreds of thousands of people dead, missing, or displaced. The earthquake decimated the nation’s infrastructure, affecting an estimated 3 million people—roughly one-third of the population. In this photo by Joe Raedle, the aftermath of the disaster can be seen in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince.
