Haiti and the Earthquake: Some more information resources
I posted previously with some links and resources about Haiti and the earthquake. I have found some additional resources to help people learn more about the nation of Haiti as well as get some disaster-related information.
- Databases for searching for loved ones in Haiti. CNN has made available a missing persons database. The CNN tool is mostly user-generated. It is basically a compilation of what CNN calls "iReports" (i.e reports sent by readers and users) about missing persons. The database is searchable. You can also file your own report if you have a loved one missing so that others may be able to help. The International Committee of the Red Cross also has a resource for missing persons. So does Google. These resources allow you to search for someone or to add information you may know about someone.
- The U.S. Census Bureau has some data about Haiti and the earthquake. You can get some facts about the earthquake. You can also get demographic information about Haiti as well as about the Haitian community in the United States.
- Resource Shelf provides links to three recent Congressional Research Service (CRS) reports about Haiti, Haitian immigrants and the earthquake. These documents may be of interest as well.
