Soledad O'Brien and CNN in Haiti



I spent the day in a tent city. Folks are calm but definitely stressed. They all mention the lack of food and it seems there's no organized system for getting it in this tent city that has grown, in this one part of Port au Prince.

We estimated more than 20 thousand people are in around this park alone. And this is just one of what must be dozens. I counted thirty and finally stopped counting as we choppered in to Port au Prince. Some of the camps are massive and sprawling. Some small and contained.

The big problem in the tent city, besides the food: the injuries. The survivors languish in a hot sun, covered by sheets and blankets on clotheslines...
