5:50 p.m. Friday. Nancy heard from Steve, via the SAT phone, and they arrived safely in Port. The trip was slow due to bad roads and heavy traffic in Gonaives. Many buses of people leaving Port fleeing to the north where there is food and water and hopefully family or friends. Steve's group went to a well known area of town called Delmas where there was much damage to most buildings. Some on the truck witnessed bodies lying by the side of the road. Many people were milling around the streets covering their noses with handkerchiefs due to the stench, afraid to enter their homes.
As it is already starting to get dark they are leaving town to arrive at TiTanyan where they hope to spend the night.
