THE BRONX - Crews are sifting through the rubble in Haiti for survivors just days after a 7.0-magnitude earthquake shook the country's capital.

Survivors describe a grim scenario in the country. However, relief efforts are finally on the way. Rescue crews and emergency personnel have started to arrive but face challenges as damaged airstrips and blocked roads are slowing the arrival of necessary equipment.

President Barack Obama has pledged $100 million in initial aid to Haiti and is sending emergency medical crews to the nation.
