Residents of Haiti are awaiting help in the wake of the strongest earthquake to hit the Caribbean
nation in more than two centuries.

The International Federation of Red Cross says up to 3 million people have been affected by yesterday's 7.0-magnitude quake.

Tens of thousands have lost their homes, and many have lost their lives.

Destroyed communications are making it impossible to learn the extent of destruction.

Also unknown is the number of dead lying among thousands of collapsed buildings in Haiti's capital.

Survivors have been coping with a series of aftershocks.
