@andersoncooper: To survive they have had to be. I wish them strength in the difficult hours and days ahead. More reports to come.

@andersoncooper: I've been back to haiti a lot over the years, in good times and bad. It is a remarkable country, the people are strong....

@andersoncooper: flight out of new york at 1am. I bought two cases of water from a cafe at the airport and we are heading to some helicopters.

@andersoncooper: I am in a taxi in santo domingo, dominican republic. The airport in port au prince is shut down, so we flew here on the last....

@andersoncooper: Rumors become facts, guesses become estimates. On a story like this you need to see it with your own eyes..

@andersoncooper: on my way into haiti. We are not sure what to expect. The initial reports are bad, but as we all know, they are often inaccurate.

    Dear Anderson,
    Thanks for getting to my country so quickly. Please send us some reports from Petion-Ville. Our country has been ravaged by this disaster, but we shall rebuild it with the help of the mighty God and the international community. I have to find my way to Haiti somehow. My Parents home in Petion-Ville have crumbled with two deaths so far in the family.

    Thanks for your excellent reporting.

    Anderson-you are probarly the best anchor in the news bussiness and your one of the reasons people (like me)prefer CNN over Fox anyday of the week. It dosent surprise me one bit that your already there willing to help out the people you can and bring the viewers up to date. Dosent surprise that CNN has the most people there reporting this news. If my small town ever has a major new story-you and your crew are more then welcome to stay with us. You sure are one of the greatest and your network is lucky to have you.

    God bless you Anderson. You are one of the few real NEWSMEN in the u.s that reports in real time on scene at great risk to yourself .
    Your work serves as a conduit between the helpless and those who can/will help. You have already saved lives by showing the world how desperate the situation is In Haiti.
    You are the Walter Cronkite of our time. Thank you.

    If Mr. Cooper can get there in less than 24 hours, why can't aid? Lets go. Lets show the world what we have to give that is good about the USA. Machines and operators sit idol in the USA. They need them.

    That is a great suggestion Dana, hope someone followes through on the idea. Anderson can bring that up on his show. May God bless the Haitian people and keep you safe while you are reporting for us Anderson. You are the best reporter when disaster strikes and we can be reassured that we get correct information. Thanks Anderson.

    Hi Anderson,
    Take care of yourself out there. I know that you may not even read this, and that many other people are trying to contact you, but I have a friend who is working there who we are all concerned about. Her name is Molly HIghtower, she worked in a hospital in Petionville that collapsed from the quake. I dont know if you are going there or if you have any way of finding out the status of the people that were in the building but any information would be of use to us. Another friend of mine is also considering going down there to look for her. I dont know if you can make any suggestions as to what he should do, we are all just struggling at this time. Our prayers go out to all of the people that are in the country right now.
