Haiti’s Disaster: The Impact of the quake

Haiti Fast Facts

The country of Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the world, and it has been devastated by the devastating earthquake and hurricane. Even before the earthquake, Haiti had lost its infrastructure and people. The country has since seen more than half of its buildings damaged, and more than half of the population displaced.

The earthquake was a disaster that devastated the country and left an enormous number of people homeless, with no access to basic services. Because of the devastation, approximately 2,600 people died from the earthquake, and more than 18,000 are still missing.

The devastation was the worst in the Caribbean since the devastating earthquake and tsunami of 2004 killed tens of thousands across several countries. The disaster was the result of a major earthquake that struck Haiti on January 12, 2010. A magnitude-8.0 earthquake hit Port-au-Prince, and it was initially felt as far away as the city of Baltimore.

In response to the disaster, the United Nations has provided Haiti with $3.2 billion in international aid. However, the disaster is also a humanitarian crisis, in that it has left many people without food, water, and shelter. This tragedy has also put the country and its people in danger of cholera or other infectious diseases.

Haiti’s population is estimated to be at over 1.5 million. However, since the earthquake, more than half of the country’s population has been displaced. An area near Port-au-Prince known as Grand’Anse has been devastated. This area, along with Port-au-Prince, are currently home to some 350,000 Haitian residents.

The country’s economy relies largely on tourism. Because of the destruction of the country following the earthquake, there are very few facilities available to tourists. Furthermore, many people are leaving the country to escape the violence.

The earthquake was so devastating that it has destroyed much of its infrastructure, and it has left many people destitute and without basic needs. This has led to a severe humanitarian crisis in Haiti’s capital city. According to a report published by the United Nations, approximately 70% of the buildings in Port-au-Prince were destroyed, with most of them being empty. The U.N. also predicts that at least 80% of the country’s buildings will have been destroyed within the next 1-2 years.
