When there is.
Destruction all around you how do you get out of town some 200000.
Haitians -- -- leaving their homes because while they simply don't exist anymore.
US forces are facing the major challenge of rebuilding that -- heavily damaged port in the capital city.
Meantime hope is fading for finding more victims and rubble ten days after the quake.
American families are making you need for help and searching for four for the college students -- music.
He was staying at the hotel Montana and -- Brian Wilson streaming live from there Brian.
And actually we're about two miles from the hotel Montana it's on the hill that you see just in the distance there about two miles away.
We have come back to our location to tell you the story of what we found there.
We know from being there on the scene we actually saw all the lists they believe there may be fourteen cubs -- twelve Americans inside that building.
It could be a larger number than that because.
They're going off some very rough records they don't know how many people were staying to a room the registration records have not yet been found so.
They have the name fourteen people they're searching for fourteen Americans but they acknowledge.
The number of Americans could be much higher we come up with a search and rescue team take a look at what we saw.
This is a rescue team from the United States Fairfax county Virginia -- on the job their goal today is to punch through the front of this hotel.
Into the lobby the experts say that in times of disaster fire or quick exit from people try to move through the -- areas of the grass.
And they believe they might find people inside the lobby area.
And they say they are working under the idea that they are still and the rescue -- not recovery.
Quite frankly as time goes forward recovery is what will more likely be the case now.
There is a bit of a controversy developing there there are some people they -- representing American families.
Who told us that they felt the Chileans who were there under the auspices of the UN.
We're perhaps focusing their attention on one particular individual the wife of a Chilean general.
Who was found this morning dead in that hotel.
They say that there was not enough attention being made to recovering the bodies of Americans however.
I must say I talked about Fairfax County rescue people and they say that simply is not the case they're going and looking for anyone without discrimination.
Without regard to where they -- out.
To those who have loved ones inside that build it back in the states let me give you the best information that I care.
It is a very difficult situation.
The entire four floors of that hotel pancaked one on -- the other.
It is very difficult work and although information may be slow in coming I want you to know that there is -- dedicated our dedicated people -- on the scene doing their very best to try to get in there and again there is a sliver of hope that there may still be people alive.
But as the time goes forward it becomes more of a recovery recovery and not a rescue operation.
That's what we found today at the hotel Montana where there -- -- press blackout for weeks.
-- for at least that we -- and we were some of the first journalists to get back in their today so this is new information that has not been available until just the last hours ago.
We spoke yesterday Brian to the parents of three of those college students missing and believed to be trapped in that hotel is there anything new you can tell us about them.
No they they say he really doesn't make a lot of sense to go to their rooms -- where their rooms would now be.
They say that what happens traditionally is that you have an earthquake you have a disaster people start moving through the structure trying to get out.
And so what they focus on first is the areas of -- the hallways as I said earlier you're trying to get into the lobby to see if perhaps someone got trapped there.
And maybe still alive so that's what their focus is the people to do this for -- -- you go all over the world say.
It doesn't make a lot of sense to try to go to individual rooms and dig in there you look for the places were people would have been running in times of a disaster.
