  • 1. Haiti Earthquake

  • 3. Affectedareas
  • 4. Causes
  • 5. The Haiti earthquake occurred at a fault that runs right through Haiti and is situated along the boundary between the Caribbean and North American plates, which are rocky slabs that cover the planet and fit together like a giant jigsaw puzzle.
    These two plates constantly creep past one another, about 0.8 inches a year, with the Caribbean plate moving eastward with respect to the North American slab.
  • 6. The two sides of the fault line moved past each other in an east-west direction and that's what caused the energy release and the Haiti earthquakes.
  • 7. Consequences

  • 9. social
    The initial impact was terrible enough.  The earthquake destroyed 30% of the capital Port-Au-Prince
    and in some neighbourhoods half the buildings went down.  The Presidential Palace, the Court of Justice, the United Nations buildings, schools government offices have not been spared.   
    Tens of thousands were killed at first and with poor rescue operations the total could rise to over 100,000.  9,000 people had been buried.   About 3 million people are affected from loss of homes, lack of food and medical treatment.

  • 11. Economic
     Haiti is by far the poorest country in the Americas.  Haiti’s citizens have never been economically stable, with about 80% of its population below the poverty line.  While many may blame the nation alone for their less than ideal economy, they have not had the best luck in the past few years. 
    They have been cursed by several tropical storms and natural disasters that have temporarily crippled their economy but none have been as devastating as this recent earthquake.  The total damages of this tragedy have reached an estimated total of $7.8 billion.
  • 12. Structural
    Damages
  • 13. The structural damages caused by the earthquake are amongst the major concerns.  Hundreds of thousands of buildings plummeted to the ground including homes, the presidential palace, and even the United Nations Peacekeeping Mission.  The earthquake resulted in 105,000 homes being destroyed, causing $2.3 billion in damage
