Quake strikes Port-Au-Prince, update

Update 2 from Ansel: Thanks so much everyone for the support.  Trying to find decent connection to get my own footage, audio, and material up.  PBS Newshour may be airing some of it soon.  In the meantime, consider donating to Partners in Health.   Did Skype interviews last night with Al Jazeera, Sky News, and MSNBC as well.  Things are difficult here.  From my Twitter: I have seen NO violence so far. Aid workers and other Haitians say the same.  Some outlets may be hyping danger of looting/crime. Keep in mind this report by my colleague Reed Lindsay: http://bit.ly/7NcunX

Update: (Ansel is unable to update this website right now.  This is Galen Herz, his brother, in Austin, TX.).  Above is an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. Ansel was also interviewed by BBC, Sky News and PBS’s NewsHour , Democracy Now, and The Takeaway. For the most recent updates from Haiti, check his Twitter feed.

I am fine. Staying in Port-Au-Prince. Have 90 mins+ HD footage of collapsed houses, landmarks, downtown, and interviews with victims. Best way to contact me is +509 3607 3401 or by e-mail, but limited Internet access.
