If you want to follow what's going on in Haiti in the wake of their devastating 7.0 magnitude earthquake, whether you have family or friends there you're hoping to track down or you just want to keep informed, the Times has an excellent live blog that is updated with the latest information. They're gathering news from online sources around the world, and the latest is that a United Nations building has collapsed in Port-au-Prince, leaving officials and peacekeepers from several nations dead. Additionally, facilities of Doctors Without Borders across Haiti have been damaged by the quake — and by the 32 aftershocks that were recorded after it. There is still no estimate as to the death toll, but some experts expect it to be in the thousands. It is, without a doubt, the most devastating earthquake to hit the region in more than 200 years.
