From Haiti Dixie Bichel has described (just now) to sky news that for over 60 hours they have experienced almost constant after shocks every 10 mins most small some bigger and she was fearing for the properties still standing she described how they were suffering motion sickness because of the constant ground movement.Does this mean that there could be another major quake building up? as that amount of after shocks does not sound normal.

Finally the military presence can be seen in Haiti in the ground.

But is not only US troops even when they have taken the charge, I have been watching the univision (Latin news) and from all over military troops are arriving and taking camp in different parts of the airport to monitor the individual countries aid relieves.

Even the Dominican Republic this morning was sending their own convoy to help with aid also.

Thanks infinite for keeping up with all this information.

My husband's found out yesterday that his company had contractors working in Haiti and they are also missing.

Same thing happened in Katrina. Gangs took advantage of the situation and there was mass murder. Blackwater had to come in and snipe the bad guys. But Haiti is a bigger size of territory. And this critical 72 hour is when PTS sets in and the smell of death increases. It's going to be a long 3-4 weeks until there is any kind if peace there.

How are refugees being divided up?

In Katrina it was guns in the hands of the gangs, but in Haiti is not guns only machetes, I imagine that as soon military personnel with guns start to show up things will settle down with the machete gangs.

Also I heard that aids will be carrying guns also for protection has anybody heard about that yet?

Is so sad, is one school that collapsed and the families of the children said that 800 children may be trapped under the rubble but no rescuers in the area yet, as many of the rescuing is going on closes to the airport and surrounding areas.

The desperation is just incredible.

Majority of the looted food has been regained. Planes are still being turned away. British Airways and Virgin Atlantic are making extra space (and allege free service) from Florida to Haiti.

I recall Skynews suggesting it was free, I'll check though.

That UFO video the day before the quake could simply be a launch from KSC. It would be worth seeing if there was any scheduled launches instead of jumping into irrational theories like everyone has done with this "Norway Black Hole" rubbish.

I also saw in Univision the private airplanes from Mexico retrieving Mexican nationals that were also in Haiti, it seems that Haiti is a spot for all kind of humanitarian efforts before the earthquake.

They have more than one the last one is the biggest one been deploy it will take time to arrive but already the Vincent is there and has hospital capabilities.




By Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class (SW) Robert A. Wood Sr., U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command Public Affairs

MAYPORT, Fla. (NNS) -- USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70) has been ordered to deploy to Haiti to conduct Humanitarian Assistance/Disaster Response (HA/DR) missions Jan. 13. Currently, Vinson is underway in the Atlantic Ocean, and will briefly loiter off the coast of Mayport to receive equipment and supplies.

Along with Vinson, USS Bataan (LHD 5) embarked with Marines from the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU 22), USS Fort McHenry ('___' 43), and USS Carter Hall ('___' 50) were ordered to get underway as soon as possible. Additionally, USS Normandy (CG 60) and USS Underwood (FFG 36) will deploy from their homeports and stand ready to assist, while USNS Comfort (T-AH-20), homeported in Baltimore, Md., is preparing to get underway, if required.

A Navy P-3 Orion aircraft from the Patrol Squadron (VP) 26 detachment operating from Cooperative Security Location (CSL) Comalapa, El Salvador, took off early this morning to conduct aerial surveys of the area affected by the earthquake.

USS Higgins (DDG 76) based out of Naval Station San Diego will arrive on station off the coast of Haiti tomorrow to provide afloat logistical services for the Coast Guard helicopters.

Additionally, various units are prepared to provide assistance with sea-based helicopters, to include H-53 Sea Stallions and H-60 Seahawks.

As the Navy component command of U.S. Southern Command, NAVSO's mission is to direct U.S. Naval forces operating in the Caribbean, Central and South American regions and interact with partner nation navies within the maritime environment. Routine operations include counter-illicit trafficking, theater security cooperation, military-to-military interaction and bilateral and multinational training.

The Marine Corps web site is reporting 2,200 Marines will be boarding the USS Bataan (LHD-5) is a Wasp-class amphibious assault ship, (Carrier) and should be in Haiti by Monday. Originally the UN wanted the expected 5,000+ US troops to fall under UN control... the US said no...

Joining the Bataan, is the Mercy Class Hospital Ship, USS Comfort. A converted oil tanker the USS Comfort. has a Complement of 63 civilian, 956 naval hospital staff, 258 naval support staff, up to 1000 bed patients.

Good luck guys and god speed... those folks really need you...

Edit to add an interesting side note... One unnamed Marine General has suggested tapping Cuba's resources, noting that they have some of the best doctors in that part of the world and are only a few hours away...
