My name is David; I work with the Department of State currently in Washington D.C. as their Chief of Crisis Response although my position is a Regional Medical Officer/Psychiatrist.

Things were very chaotic at that time, the whole compound was full of people from the military as well as search and rescue crews and other people from Department of Health and Human Services and they were camped around the embassy. There were a lot of officers working in the Foreign Service as well as Haitian staff who were very effected, many of them lost their homes.
