Aid is slowly beginning to trickle in more than forty-eight hours after the earthquake struck. Aid flights were diverted for over five hours Thursday because of a lack of space and fuel at the Port-au-Prince airport. Earlier today, the World Food Programme said its Port-au-Prince warehouses had been looted. The United Nations is planning to make an appeal today for $550 million in emergency aid. The first US troops have begun to arrive in Haiti, the first wave of an expected deployment of over 5,500 US forces. On Thursday, President Obama said the US would contribute a first installment of $100 million in aid to Haiti.
