The United States and other nations are working hard to support recovery efforts in the Caribbean nation of Haiti after this week's destructive Earthquake. Likely due to damage, weather information is limited in at the airport in the capitol city of Port-au-Prince. Here is a link to the airport weather observation site: http://weather.noaa.gov/weather/current/MTPP.html Notice the gaps in information. The U.S. Air Force is one of the many groups supporting operations in the disaster zone. They have set up a temporary observation site at the airport: http://weather.noaa.gov/weather/current/KQHA.html For more information on Haiti & Caribean weather, follow these links from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Organization: http://www.srh.noaa.gov/mfl/?n=haiti_support http://www.srh.noaa.gov/sju/?n=observations03 Typically this time of year, being that the nation is on a tropical island, it can be very humid with warm temperatures in the 80s and sometimes near 90 in Port-au-Prince. Thankfully there have been no major storms in the area hampering the recovery efforts. We should be proud of the men and women of our armed forces along with various volunteer organizations who helping those in Haiti. As always, these blogs are just opinion of the blog writer and not that of Newschannel 9. With that said, if you're interested in donating to the recovery effort, the Red Cross is always a good place to start: http://www.redcross.org/
