DALLAS — A Haitian student studying in Dallas learned Sunday that her father made it through the earthquake and is alive.

Meroudjie Denis has been glued to her Facebook account since Tuesday.  Through the social networking Web site, she learned about her family and the status of her friends.

Some have even posted entries while still trapped under the rubble.

"What's even worse is getting messages from people saying they were stuck, then they were saved -- then two days, later they passed away," Denis said.

She is still trying to learn the fate of several other family members.
