Earthquake in Haiti - The Big Picture

Haitian officials said more than 100,000 could have died in the Tuesday earthquake that devastated the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. The Haitian president, in a CNN interview, said it was too early to give a number, but he said he had heard estimates from 30,000 to 50,000 to 100,000. As expected, The Big Picture is on the scene.
