Following the news in Haiti

Via Mark Goldberg at the UN dispatch, I'm following these twitter feeds to try and get more information: RAMHaiti, isabelleMORSE and troylivesay.

Ushahidi's Haiti microsite is also carrying a timeline of incidents as they are reported.

The US Geological Survey is reporting up to 24 aftershocks that have hit the country since the original 7.0 quake.

Images of the disaster are here.

Those who are able can help Haiti Earthquake Relief and donate $5 by texting YELE to 501 501. Or visit

UPDATE: The Miami Herald tells us how we can help relief efforts in Haiti. Awaiting news on any local/regional efforts to which we can contribute.

UPDATE II: Check out the NYTimes twitter list as well as my own updates/retweets in the twitter widget on the right.
