Updated satellite images of Haiti earthquake damage

I just got an email from the folks at DigitalGlobe that they are offering free access and downloading of their satellite photos of Haiti both pre- and post-earthquake, for the next two weeks:
DigitalGlobe's Crisis Event Service is actively collecting imagery of Haiti in response to the recent earthquakes.  With the power of the DigitalGlobe satellite constellation, we will have 23 collection opportunities of the earthquake damage over the next two weeks.
In an effort to help the humanitarian efforts underway in Haiti, we are offering free access to both pre- and post-earthquake imagery until January 28, 2010 with our ImageConnect plug-in for GIS software.
We also have an earthquake image gallery and damage analysis available on our website. View our gallery.
