Evening Buzz: Haiti's Preventable Deaths

Maureen Miller
AC360° Writer

At least 259 people have died in a cholera outbreak in Haiti and the U.N. fears "tens of thousands" could become infected. These are deaths that didn't have to happen. Actor/activist Sean Penn has sounded the alarm for months. We'll talk to him about the outbreak. And, what about all the money pledged to help rebuild after January's earthquake? We're Keeping Them Honest.

Also tonight, what it feels like to be in the middle of a tornado and live to tell the story. Anderson will talk with Navarro County Texas Emergency Management Coordinator Eric Meyers, who shot the incredible video of a twister hitting his area last night.

And, she first made headlines as the 'hiccup girl' in 2007 when she couldn't stop hiccuping and was searching for a cure. Tonight she has much bigger problems. She's accused of first-degree murder. Details in our Crime and Punishment report.

Join us for these stories and much more at 10 p.m. ET. See you then.

    You spent a lot of time covering the Hatti story in the immediate aftermath of that tragedy. I cannot understand why you are not spending just as much time finding the government officials who promised so much aid and finding out why they haven't delivered

    Tornadoes are scary – we live in the Southeastern "twister alley" in Alabama and each spring we keep our eye on the storm forecasts. Birmingham had some bad tornadoes about a dozen years ago and I really don't want a repeat. I can't imagine staying where I could film it; I'm always the first one to tell everyone to head for cover. Looking forward to seeing his video.
