(NECN: RD Sahl) - It has been one year since a magnitude seven earthquake shook Haiti to its core. At least 230,000 people died when the quake leveled huge sections of the captial of Port Au Prince.
Today, the city's traffic-clogged streets were quiet as businesses closed and people walked in solemn processions to prayer services marking the anniversary. A mass attended by Haitian authorities was held in a tent next to the Haitian capital's wrecked cathedral.
NECN contributor RD Sahl was in Haiti seven weeks after the quake, and has been following the recovery effort.
