CNN actually has good coverage right now, including USGS experts. Basically, it's the depth that makes this quake so terribly dangerous. (That and the proximity to Port au Prince) The city is surrounded by mountains which were created by previous earthquakes.

TV's tied up with kids, does anyone know of a link to news coverage for this? CNN live is showing normal broadcasting...

If you can find a CNN international live feed they've been dedicated to the subject since it happened. (This is what they are showing on TV, no idea why the web feed's not carrying it.)

Pictures are starting to come out quickly now. I'll try to update as fast as I can, but more can be found by searching #Haiti and #Earthquake on twitter

Another 5.1 aftershock just occurred.

Those poor people.

I'm watching Wolf Blitzer now. They don't have a casualty count, or pictures up at the moment, but they're interviewing a guy who's saying he can hear screams and cries for help. Not good at all. Of all places to happen in the world... Haiti... they don't need something like this at all.

I mentioned this in the California thread a few days ago. This is becoming too frequent to be unusual. and the magnitudes are gettin bigger.

I fear the casualities will be high and this will devastate Haiti even further. How will these people overcome such abject poverty and destruction I don't know, but I will pray for them and open my purse and donate to my favorite charity which happens to help children not only in Haiti but all around the world, I urge that you all do the same

that's a pic from before the earthquake and probably after another disaster, haven't found any real time images from there as of yet.

Yah, I don't think there are many places that could have been worse for something like this to happen. Hopefully the aftershocks continue to diminish in intensity and they can get some information out of the country. I think the fact that there is relatively no news coming out is a pretty bad sign.
