It’s been two weeks since the 7.0-magnitude earthquake hit the already impoverished nation of Haiti. It buried much of the capital under tons of rubble and affected more than 3 million Haitians. Approximately 50 aftershocks of a magnitude 4.5 or higher have rocked the country since the January 12 quake. The most recent estimates put the death toll at this point around 150,000 and more than 1 million people have been displaced.

Anderson is live in Haiti where he is reporting on how aid is getting to the people. After the quake, many nations responded aggressively – flooding aid and medical help to the stricken nation. But a lack of infrastructure and organization means that many Haitians are still without enough food, shelter or medical help. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton met with world leaders in Montreal yesterday to talk about plans to help rebuild the country. The U.S. has pledged at least $10 million in aid, with more to come. How much influence do other nations have over the future of Haiti?

Gary Tuchman is also in Haiti where is he reporting on what happens to all of the displaced people who lost their homes in the quake. The U.N. estimates that as many as 1 million people — one person in nine across the entire country — need to find new shelter, but there are too few tents to put them in.

We’re continuing our coverage of the stimulus project tonight with a story about ‘signs of waste.’ Most Americans say that the economic stimulus plan has either helped the economy or prevented conditions from getting worse, but only a third see any personal benefit from the stimulus, according to a new national poll.

Sound Off: Your comments 1/25/10

Editor's Note: We continue to receive many positive comments about our ongoing coverage in Haiti. Many of you wrote in to say you appreciate that Anderson is still there “Keeping them honest.” Others of you let us know what you are doing to help in Haiti.

On Behalf of the people of Haiti, Thank you and the cnn crew for reaching out to us. If it wasn't for the cnn crew on the ground, the world would not have responded so quickly in a timely manner. Anderson Cooper, Dr. Sanjay Gupta...God Bless you all. I don't know the names of all the reporters that are on the ground in Haiti covering this tragedy from every angle, but a thousand THANKS to you all.

Once again, I find myself held captive every night by Anderson Cooper's reporting of this terrible tragedy. I would like to commend him for not just going there and holding a mic and talking dispassionately about the people of Haiti's problems. He really seems to care. His voice has become the answer to our frustrations. He doesn't just stand there and look helpless; he helps as all of us witnessed when that young man got into trouble. When a disaster happens, it doesn't help to have a bunch of reporters just standing there and talking. Anderson Cooper asks all the right questions and when the people of Haiti aren't getting the help they need, he demands to know why, just like he did in New Orleans.
