The 7.0-magnitude earthquake, Haiti's worst in two centuries, struck at 1653 local time (2153 GMT) on 15 January, 2010, just 15km (10 miles) south-west of Port-au-Prince and close to the surface.
Tens of thousands are now feared dead and reportedly up to three million affected. The situation there is at a critical point, with hundreds of thousands of quake survivors desperately waiting for help.
