The Haitian government declares a state of emergency after at least 304 people died in a recent earthquake. The earthquake was recorded to have a 7.2 magnitude. More than 1,800 people are injured, the country's civil protection service says. A tsunami threat that had been issued for the region has passed, the US Tsunami Warning System says. "There are reports of significant damage to homes, roads, and infrastructure," Red Cross spokeswoman says. A 7.0-magnitude earthquake that struck Haiti on January 12, 2010, left between 220,000 and 300,000 people dead and injured hundreds of thousands more.
