At least 304 dead after earthquake in Haiti

Officials have confirmed at least 304 people have died in Haiti from a 7.2 magnitude earthquake that struck on Saturday. That number is expected to rise.

An additional 1,800 people have been injured.

After the earthquake buildings crumbled and there was a threat of a tsunami.

Rescue and recovery operations will likely be hindered by Tropical Storm Grace. Over Haiti and the Dominican Republic, 4 to 7 inches of rainfall with isolated maximum totals of 10 inches is possible.

On January 12, 2010, Haiti was rocked by a 7.0 magnitude earthquake that killed 200,000 people.
