Bodies everywhere in Haiti today. In the streets. In the rubble. And the living, up against challenges that are getting tougher.
Relief is starting to trickle in. But it is coming into a scene of overwhelming earthquake disaster.
In this hour, we will go to Haiti. We’ll talk with officials at the top of the relief effort. We’ll team up with a Haitian radio station in Florida to learn what can be known.
And we’ll take your calls, your news and insights from family and relief workers in Haiti.
