Haiti has endured a series of natural disasters and tragedies on a "biblical" scale, Hillary Clinton, the US Secretary of State said on Wednesday as she cut short an Asian trip to deal with the earthquake crisis.

The Telegraph is reporting that Hillary Clinton said : “It is biblical, the tragedy that continues to stalk Haiti and the Haitian people,” referring to the long history of natural disasters plaguing the Caribbean country. “Here is a timeline of some of the worst natural disasters to batter Haiti:
