Haiti Earthquake Shaking Intensity by Address

For those who have family or friends in Haiti the Haiti Earthquake Shaking Intensity tool allows one to enter in an address in Haiti (either in French or English) to see USGS-supplied data on how intense the earthquake was at the location. The tool is not pretty, merely a textbox, but it shows how the marriage of geographical data and the internet is aiding researchers, rescuers, and families in times of crises and peace.
