It has been two days now since a magnitude 7.0 earthquake shook the country's capital, Port-au-Prince, to its core. The Red Cross Federation now estimates the death toll at 45,000 to 50,000.

Robert Siegel talks to NPR's Carrie Kahn, who is in Port-au-Prince, about the unfolding humanitarian crisis there.
