Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama is scheduled to speak about the earthquake in Haiti Wednesday at 10 a.m. ET, according to White House spokesman Tommy Vietor.
Obama received two memorandums updating him on the situation earlyWednesday morning, Vietor said. One of the memos, from the president's national security adviser, described "key decisions that have been made, and actions that have already been taken," Vietor said.
Obama also received an additional update from his national security staff Wednesday morning, Vietor added.
The powerful 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck Haiti on Tuesday, destroying scores of structures while knocking down phone and power lines.
