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:
1770: Strong earthquake devastates Port-au-Prince in then French colony.
1842: Earthquake destroys Cap-Haitien and other cities in northern Haiti and Dominican Republic.
1935: Unnamed storm kills more than 2,000 in Haiti before moving on to Florida as hurricane, where 400 die.
1946: Magnitude-8.1 quake strikes Dominican Republic and Haiti, causing tsunami that kills 1,790 people.
1954: Hurricane Hazel kills hundreds in Haiti.
1963: Hurricane Flora leaves more than 6,000 dead in Haiti and Cuba.
1994: Hurricane Gordon blamed for hundreds of deaths in Haiti.
1998: Hurricane Georges destroys 80 percent of Haiti’s crops while killing more than 400.
May 2004: Three days of heavy rains cause floods that kill more than 2,600.
September 2004: Tropical Storm Jeanne causes flooding and landslides that kill 1,900 and leave 200,000 homeless in Gonaives, Haiti’s third-largest city.
October 2007: Tropical Storm Noel triggers mudslides and floods, killing at least 57 Haitians.
August and September 2008: Three hurricanes and tropical storm kill some 800 in Haiti, devastate crops and cause $1 billion in damage.
