Getting Aid to Haiti After the Earthquake

The death toll in Haiti is nearing 2000 with nearly 7,000 injured as a result of a devastating earthquake this past Saturday morning.  The U.S. is assessing earthquake damage there and sending a joint taskforce to support humanitarian efforts. This is a horrible replay of what we saw on the island nation 11 years ago when an earthquake struck in 2010.  We take a look at what’s happening on the ground right now, how weather, politics and other factors are complicating getting aid to Haiti.
