Massive earthquake rattles Haiti on Jan. 12

A magnitude-7 earthquake strikes near the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince, killing more than 200,000 and leaving 2 million more homeless. Post-quake conditions in the country, aggravated by a weak healthcare infrastructure and poor water sanitation, lead to a cholera outbreak in October. The death toll from cholera passes 2,500 on Dec. 19. -- Eryn Brown, Los Angeles Times RELATED: Photos: Earthquake hits Haiti More news about the Haiti earthquake from La Plaza blog
