Thursday Night Haiti Update
Rescue efforts in Haiti are still facing difficulty in reaching the people. The Red Cross estimates 50,000 have been killed.
It's a race against time.
The pictures and news reports are harrowing. Looting is beginning, bodies are lining the streets and beginning to decay. Disease will begin spreading. The cemetaries are filled, and people are being put in mass graves.
Money is pouring in to relief organizations and countries around the world are trying to help, but the conditions there are so awful, it may be too little too late. The heavy equipment needed to dig out more potential survivors is still not there. People are still alive under the rubble. The medical care is not getting to them quickly enough. They need more supplies and pain meds.
The main port is closed, the airport is strained, relief workers say it's chaos.
