Linda talks to Chief Jim Brown, Deputy Task Force leader for the USAID rescue program. He's from the Fairfax County Search and Rescue Squad in Virginia, and joins us by phone from Taiwan to discuss search and rescue efforts there in the wake of Tuesday morning's 7-point-6 magnitude earthquake. Teams from Virginia and Florida are helping to dig out people trapped in the rubble of collapsed buildings.
