Members of Fairfax County Urban Search and Rescue scale what used to be the Montana Hotel in order to conduct a rescue operation at the Port-au-Prince hotel. The all volunteer service partnered with U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and multi-national relief agencies to support the massive relief efforts needed in the aftermath of Tuesday’s earthquake. Eight personnel, including 7 Americans, have been rescued from the rubble of the hotel. (U.S. Navy Photo by Mass Communication Specialist First Class Joshua Lee Kelsey)
