Port-au-Prince, Haiti

Posted by Laurie Frost on January 16, 2010

The images for this post are from US government websites that are in Haiti to offer aid following the earthquake that demolished Port-au-Prince on January 2010.

These aerial photos taken by Global Hawk unmanned aircraft on January 14, 2010 are from the US Air Force photo gallery. The first is of the National Cathedral; the next, the Presidential Palace.

These next two photos from the US Coast Guard website show the harbor damage at Port-au-Prince. [100113-G-0000X-013, 100113-G-9999G-050].

The rest of the photos, as well as their captions,  are from the US Navy’s Eye on the Fleet image gallery, which is updated nearly daily.
