The final death count is still unclear, but estimates now hover around 200,000. To put this in perspective, the Haitian quake killed roughly the same number of people as the massive 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, which struck 14 mostly larger countries. Haiti has also essentially lost its capital. Several days after the quake, some unidentified bodies remained pinned down by rubble in central Port-au-Prince. To remove the bodies, neighbors began burning them in place, leaving charred remains.
