According to MSNBC:

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – A powerful earthquake hit the impoverished country of Haiti on Tuesday, collapsing the presidential palace and raising fears of substantial casualties in what the country’s U.S. ambassador called “a major disaster.”

President René Garcia Préval was reported to be safe, but Radio Metropole of Port-au-Prince, the capital, quoted a government official as saying there were “certainly dozens of deaths.”

A reporter for the Reuters news agency in Port-au-Prince said he saw dozens of dead and injured people in the rubble, which blocked streets in the city.
