12 South Florida College Students Stuck in Haiti; Phone Line Set Up For those Seeking Info on Relatives

Twelve students from Lynn University in Boca Raton are amongst those stuck in Haiti in the aftermath of yesterday's devastating earth quake. One student was able to send a text message to a parent, and reports that all twelve are safe. 

The group was traveling with Food for the Poor, a charitable organization that employs 600 people in Haiti. They're currently accepting donations to help with relief. 

Meanwhile, The US State Department has set up a phone number for Americans seeking information on relatives who may have been affected. That number is 888-407-4747.
