The help is there but is so hard to get into the people due to the severe destruction, even the Helicopters can not even do drops if needed because the problem with fuel as they required plenty.

BRASILIA, – The number of Brazilian soldiers who died as a result of the earthquake that hit Port au Prince, Haiti’s capital, on Tuesday rose to 14, according to a statement released Thursday by Brazil’s Ministry of Defense.
Four officers remain unaccounted for, and 14 were injured — two will be returned to Brazil and another two have been hospitalized in the Dominican Republic, neighboring Haiti, the statement added.

The Brazilian government on Thursday declared official mourning across the country for three days, starting on Wednesday, for victims of the earthquake that destroyed part of Haiti.
Among the 1,310 Brazilians living in Haiti, most are military personnel serving as the United Nations peacekeepers.
Rogue AV exploiting Haiti earthquake

Just when you think they couldn't possibly go any lower ... The bad guys behind the Rogue AV scam (see my old diary at isc.sans.org... about Rogue AV) are heavily using SEO techniques to make links to their sites appear high on search engines. For example, when using Google to search for "haiti earthquake donation" top 6 hits (!) lead to compromised web sites which in turn check the referrer (they verify if you are coming from a search engine) and, if that is true, redirect you to another web site.
At the moment they are redirecting to scan-now24.com which appears to be taken down.
As posted on numerous places yesterday – if you plan on donating be very careful about sites you visit.

Could this quake be man made...Is there reason for the US to go into Haiti. Do we need to flank Cuba before something happens.
The HAARP program can easily pulse large blast anywhere in the world.
That is just hilarious, because right not there is a burly Cuban with an AK flanking me. As I posted yesterday, our Mass Casualty Victim ID Team flew into PAP. We had to set up at the airport because the road out of the airport was completely blocked by people who saw the airport as their only way out. We couldn't bring portable facilities for space reasons. The Chinese Team that came in on Air China from Vancouver offered one of their inflatables and the Cuban Air Force who flew in 70 physicians, powered our "morgue" by cabling from their Ilyushin's APU. Because we did bring food and water, one of the Cubans volunteered to provide security for us. We trade burgers for cigars. Of course we call him Fidel.
And believe me not much is hilarios. After 24 hours of assessing preliminary causes of death and drawing fluids for DNA and doing fingerprints, I totally and completel lost it. The young grad student who was assisting put her hand on my shoulder and said, "Doc, do you realize you're talking to the bodies?" Of course I realized it. Then they brought another little girl in and I lost it. "What killed you, mes infant? Who are you? I won't hurt you." With no end in sight, I had to take a break. Thankfully our G-II has a sat modem so I can communicate. And try to sleep for a couple of hours. And I have to read what that AH Pat Robertson said. He couldn't even wait until babies stopped dying before he tried to solicit donations for himself. If I believed in prayer I would pray for him to quickly follow Oral Roberts.
Oh, and to supremely impatient Aggie Man, Get off your butt and get down here and help instead of bitching about how slow we are. I put my hands inside 46 dead men, women and infants yesterday and today and I could use some help. And bring some good Kentucky Bourbon with you, not that rotgut Tennessee junk we feed to the pigs.
