At about 5pm local time on Tuesday 12 January, an earthquake measuring 7.0 on the Richter scale hit the Caribbean country of Haiti. It's estimated to have killed up to 200,000 people and left over a million more injured and homeless.
Morning Ireland has been reporting on the disaster from the first day and continues to do so. Cian McCormack travelled to Haiti shortly after the earthquake struck, and has returned now, to check on the reconstruction efforts six months later.
