ORLANDO, Fla. -- The American Red Cross says a plan to bring 45,000 evacuees from Haiti to Florida, and 4,000 of those to Orange County, is not set in stone. The Red Cross clarified Friday who could be involved in a plan to move people out of Haiti.
The Red Cross is preparing for two things: the repatriation of Americans living in Haiti and the possibility of a mass migration of Haitian nationals.
""It would occur to me that there is a legal process associated with that and it would probably have to come through the State Department in terms of citizenship and visas, work visas [and] that sort of thing," Mayor Crotty said.
What that influx of people brings with it is a very large service demand, particularly in the area of social services in what is already a tough economy..

That equipment should have been there to begin with, kind of late now, but hey the military keeps telling that Haiti is a logistics nightmare, I guess is worst once you are in the streets.
