Military cargo planes continue to fly Americans from earthquake-ravaged from Haiti to a New Jersey Military base.

Hundreds of evacuees have arrived at McGuire Air Force Base since Friday, and officials said more flights could arrive Sunday night.

Angel Lopez, a base spokeswoman, said 579 evacuees had been processed there as of 5 p.m. Sunday.

The base has set up an evacuation center, where the evacuees can get clothing, be examined by a doctor and receive mental health counseling and other services if they wish. Evacuees also can arrange for relatives to pick them up there or make other travel arrangements.
