Two years ago on January 12th, Haiti experienced its most devastating earthquake in over a century. The 7.0 earthquake affected millions of Haitians. The death toll was over 200,000 while over a million Haitians were left homeless.
In the midst of the earthquake, major roads were blocked with debris and Haiti's already fragile communications infrastructure crumbled, creating a severe blackout. Prior to the earthquake, many news outlets did not have a major presence in Haiti. It took over 24-hours for reporters and news crews to parachute into Haiti to cover the devastation.
Erin Burnett OutFront digital producer Leinz Vales speaks to one Pennsylvania family that survived the devastating Haiti earthquake.
