Florida Contact Information for Family of Haiti Earthquake Victims
On January 12th, 2009 a powerful 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck 7 miles outside of Haiti's capital Port-au-Prince causing devastating widespread damage for up to 100 miles from the center of the earthquake. There are also Tsunami warnings posted throughout the Caribbean for islands such as Cuba, Bahamas and Dominican Republic.
The US and Haitian Governments said currently all communication with the island is down in the form of telephone and internet communication. Reaching someone by phone in the country is spotty and not expected to be back up until the end of this week. If you are searching for loved ones in Haiti, whether it is a resident of the nation or Missionary, these are the best numbers to reach someone in Florida and Washington D.C. that may be able to help with locating who you are looking for.
