Haiti Pier Opens, Road Laid Into Port-au-Prince
Source: CNN International

Washington (CNN) -- One of two piers at the port serving the Haitian capital has reopened, and a gravel road was laid off of it, clearing a major route for aid to come into the city, officials said.

A Dutch Navy ship, the Pelikaan, unloaded 90 tons of humanitarian aid Thursday morning. Two other ships previously offloaded containers for trucks to carry supplies into Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

However, the road only allows for one-way traffic, and because of concerns about the pier, only one truck was allowed on it at any time.

1. That is some good news
I hope they can get it shored up enough to safely support loading more than one truck at a time but still, this is a huge improvement.
