Update from Haiti


A quick update from Haiti. Going out soon.

Camped outside of Embassy.

Met GIS folks this morning. Impressive capabilities. There are at least five parallel efforts on damage assessment. Focus now is on Indigenous Displaced Peoples (IDP).

Glenn and Steve going to port with Colone Cintron and Navy Captain. After functioning for a while, port down again as piers have sustained additional damage.

Marc and Justin going with Army engineers. Will meet with UN group this afternoon to discuss needs for engineers. Will meet with U.N. emergency engineering group too this (Andre, Reggie).

Walter has temporarily installed the first ground- motion station in Haiti at the embassy. Today, he will install an instrument permanently on the grounds. Good support for installing more instruments, even south of PaP.

More later...
