Geodetic models suggested that it accommodates 7±2 mm/yr of left-lateral slip, and historical accounts suggest it may be the source of at least three major historical earthquakes. [148] On 29 January 2010, a group of ten American Baptist missionaries from Idaho attempted to cross the Haiti-Dominican Republic border with 33 Haitian children. with the 2010 earthquake. Focal mechanism solutions indicate that rupture occurred on either a right-lateral southeast-striking fault or on a left-lateral west-southwest-striking fault. Rupture initiates on the steep EPGF (A, north-dipping blind thrust (Léogâne fault, B) is visible near the hypocentre and to the west. A.S. and M.S. [45] There are concerns that the main earthquake could be the beginning of a new long-term sequence: "the whole region is fearful"; historical accounts, although not precise, suggest that there has been a sequence of quakes progressing westwards along the fault, starting with an earthquake in the Dominican Republic in 1751. The toolkit would comprise building technology resources and best practices for consideration by the Haitian government with the goal of creating a more resilient infrastructure to prevent future losses of life. Around 200 guests were killed in the collapse of the Hôtel Montana in Port-au-Prince. [35] However, a study published in May 2010 suggested that the rupture process may have involved slip on multiple blind thrust faults with only minor, deep, lateral slip along or near the main Enriquillo–Plantain Garden fault zone, suggesting that the event only partially relieved centuries of accumulated left-lateral strain on a small part of the plate-boundary system. By means of numerical simulations we further demonstrate that the accounts well match with the expected behaviour of a distant earthquake-triggered tsunami.

The 1957 Gobi-Altay earthquake was associated with both strike-slip and thrust faulting, processes similar to those along the San Andreas fault and the faults bounding the San Gabriel Mountains just north of Los Angeles, California. experienced significant earthquakes in 1751 and 1770 (refs 3, 4, 5), but The, most likely source of this slip is a fault similar in orientation and, a complex surface expression in the rupture area, the EPGF. R.W.B., C.P., K.H., P.M., F.W.T., A.J.C. Images and testimonials circulating after the earthquake across the internet and through social media helped to intensify the reaction of global engagement. This small patch, of surface motion, which is opposite to the long-term left-lateral, displacement on the EPGF, is best modelled by a 45, dipping fault that has a maximum slip of approximately 1.5, The south-dipping geometry implies that a transfer zone exists. More than 6000 scientists worldwide are currently using this free, public domain collection of UNIX tools that contains programs serving a variety of research functions. Telling them to wash their hands when there's no water or soap is a slap in the face. [220], In the aftermath of the earthquake, the government of Canada announced that it would match the donations of Canadians up to a total of C$50 million. The 26-member international Interim Haiti Reconstruction Commission, headed by Bill Clinton and Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive, convened in June 2010. In addition, 39 trucks carrying canned food were dispatched, along with 10 mobile kitchens and 110 cooks capable of producing 100,000 meals per day.[123]. (At the time of the quake, Haiti la… The January 12, 2010, M 7.0 Haiti earthquake occurred as the result of shallow strike-slip faulting in the boundary region separating the Caribbean plate and the North America plate. [84] The government handed over control of the airport to the United States to hasten and ease flight operations, which had been hampered by the damage to the air traffic control tower. These events are comparable, but not identical, in terms of the rupture zone and magnitude. [42], On 20 January, at 06:03 local time (11:03 UTC), the strongest aftershock since the earthquake,[43] measuring magnitude 5.9 Mw, struck Haiti. [234] Around 2,000 Haitians applied for this offer. We also apply a Laplacian smoothing operator to reduce the. Working in close partnership with other relief organizations, Real Medicine organized deployments of volunteer medical specialists to meet the needs of partner hospitals and clinics at the Haiti–Dominican Republic border and in Port-au-Prince, provided direct funding, medical supplies and pharmaceuticals to local health facilities and partner hospitals, provided advisory services and coordination to local health facilities, including physical therapy support, and coordinated mobile health outreaches, field clinics and food supplies to outlying villages overlooked in the relief effort. In a public letter co-authored with UNESCO head Irina Bokova, Jean said, "As time passes, what began as a natural disaster is becoming a disgraceful reflection on the international community. The cores contain evidence of multiple palaeo-washover deposits that are readily distinguished by their sedimentology, geochemistry and microfossil assemblages. However, there are inconsistencies that pose doubts about the actual occurrence of an eruption. [284], 12 January 2010 magnitude 7.0 Mw earthquake, Charles, Jacqueline, Clark, Lesley, Robles, Frances, Charles, Jacqueline, Clark, Lesley, Robles, Frances, Trention, Daniel, Charles, Jacqueline, Pressoir, Jean-Cyril, Brecher, Elinor, Ian Rawson, managing director, Hôpital Albert Schweitzer, Deschapelles. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton visited Haiti on 16 January to survey the damage and stated that US$48 million had been raised already in the US to help Haiti recover. 2b,d). She blamed the international community for abandoning its commitments. [137] The OpenStreetMap community responded to the disaster by greatly improving the level of mapping available for the area using post-earthquake satellite photography provided by GeoEye,[138] and crowdmapping website Ushahidi coordinated messages from multiple sites to assist Haitians still trapped and to keep families of survivors informed. The US Geological Survey (USGS) National Earthquake Information Center (NEIC) located this earthquake at 18:44 N, 72:57 W, at a depth of 13km, with an origin time of 21:53:10 utc and a … Between 23 major charities, US$1.1 billion had been collected for Haiti for relief efforts, but only two percent of the money had been released. Slip on the Léogâne, fault accounts for the coastal uplift from Gressier to Petit Goâve and, reproduces the broad subsidence trough observed in the mountains, to the south. We here present background information about the properties of moment tensors and examples of moment tensor analysis. [171] President Préval asked for calm coordination between assisting nations without mutual accusations. We need the helping hand of other countries in the area. We associate these small offsets with the most recent surface-rupturing earthquake, which is likely one of two historical earthquakes, in 1770 or 1751. Version 3.1 of the Generic Mapping Tools (GMT) has been released. I can only think that their priority must be somewhere else. The applicability of the framework can be tested using different case studies. The global centroid moment ten-, sor ( solution for the, event indicates shallow focus, and slip on a steeply dipping, location and mechanism for this event suggested rupture on the, Enriquillo–Plantain Garden fault zone (EPGF), a major left-lateral, between the Caribbean plate and Gonâve microplates. "[269], On 25 August 2012, recovery was hampered due to Tropical Storm Isaac impacting Haiti's southern peninsula. Additional discontinuities appear in the upper mantle beneath PAPH (60.1 km depth), PCDR (Punta Cana; 60 km), SDD (Santo Domingo; 70 km), and SC01 (Santiago; 81 km). S5); nor does such a model explain, well the observed coseismic observations from GPS studies, The Léogâne fault is geometrically consistent with the overall, style of faulting in the Central Haiti fold-and-thrust belt, However, a single north-dipping thrust fault does not account for, the patch of east-directed movement north of the EPGF at the, eastern end of the rupture, mentioned above. The strike-slip fault system in the region has two branches in Haiti, the Septentrional-Oriente fault in the north and the Enriquillo-Plantain Garden fault in the south; both its location and focal mechanism suggested that the January 2010 quake was caused by a rupture of the Enriquillo-Plantain Garden fault, which had been locked for 250 years, gathering stress. [115] The most reliable academic estimate of the number of earthquake casualties in Haiti (over 95% were in the immediate Port-au-Prince area) "within six weeks of the earthquake" appears to be the 160,000 estimate in a 2010 University of Michigan study. Strong sh… [191], On 17 January 2010, British search and rescue teams were the first to reach Léogane, the town at the epicenter of the quake. We also introduce a new statistic, the seismic consistency Cs, which measures the similarity of earthquakes within a group. [232], President Abdoulaye Wade of Senegal offered interested Haitians free land in Senegal;[233] depending on how many respond to the offer, this could include up to an entire region. We report results of a receiver function study using teleseismic data recorded by these stations. The lack of surface deformation along the EPGF--which shows clear field evidence for Holocene, and probably historic surface rupture--and the predominance of shallow off-fault thrusting implies that considerable shallow shear strain remains to be released in future surface-rupturing earthquakes on the EPGF, including the section adjacent to Port-au-Prince. Despite the claims of the American Red Cross that 130,000 homes had been built, the investigation discovered that only six had been built. ", "Two years on and Haiti's reconstruction proceeds at a 'snail's pace,' leaving half a million Haitians homeless – Oxfam America", "Institute for Justice & Democracy in Haiti » Blog Archive » Press Release: Two Years After The Earthquake, Where Did The Money Go? The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies estimated that as many as 3 million people had been affected by the quake. The 2010 Haiti earthquake (French: Séisme de 2010 à Haïti; Haitian Creole: Tranblemanntè 12 janvye 2010 nan peyi Ayiti) was a catastrophic magnitude 7.0 M w earthquake, with an epicenter near the town of Léogâne and approximately 25 kilometres (16 mi) west of Port-au-Prince, Haiti's capital. Numerous historical earthquakes have been associated with the EPGFZ, although the Mw 7.1, 12 January 2010 Haiti earthquake in Haiti occurred nearby on a previously unmapped fault, now called the Léogâne fault (Calais et al., 2010; The Haiti earthquake occurred on tuesday, January 12, 2010 at 21:53:10 UTC. "[70] Port-au-Prince had no municipal petrol reserves and few city officials had working mobile phones before the earthquake, making communications and transportation very difficult. [16][17] The headquarters of the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), located in the capital, collapsed, killing many, including the Mission's Chief, Hédi Annabi. . [82], President Préval and government ministers used police headquarters near the Toussaint L'Ouverture International Airport as their new base of operations, although their effectiveness was extremely limited; several parliamentarians were still trapped in the Presidential Palace, and offices and records had been destroyed. Italy announced it would waive repayment of the €40 million it had loaned to Haiti,[159] and the World Bank waived the country's debt repayments for five years. Because the geologic signature of this earthquake involves broad warping and coastal deformation rather than surface rupture along the main fault zone, the event will not leave a distinct geologic signal that will be easily recognized by standard paleoseismic studies. On 12 January 2010, a Mw 7.0 earthquake struck the Port-au-Prince region of Haiti. Human Rights Groups Urge Immediate Changes I...", "Tropical Storm Isaac douses Haiti, killing 4 before crossing Cuba and aiming at Florida", Aid workers prep Haiti's tent city residents for Isaac's onlsaught – World News, "65 dead as Hurricane Sandy crosses Caribbean; 'the whole south is under water,' says Haitian PM (with video)", "Haiti's disaster risk management and recovery experience showcased at GFDRR meeting", "LOOK: Haiti 3 Years Later: Where Has The Money Gone? Whilst the balance of circumstantial evidence indicates that the deposit was probably emplaced during the tsunami generated by the 1907 earthquake, we are currently unable to differentiate between tectonically and meteorologically driven washover events based on their sedimentological characteristics. [273], According to the International Monetary Fund, more than half of the 10,000,000 cubic metres (13,000,000 cu yd) of debris have been removed, and 20% of it has been recycled. The long rupture and large offsets with strong horizontal shortening that characterize the Wenchuan earthquake herald a re-evaluation of tectonic models anticipating little or no active shortening of the upper crust along this edge of the plateau, and require a re-assessment of seismic hazard along potentially under-rated active faults across the densely populated western Sichuan basin and mountains. Each block has uplifted at different times, by different amounts, at different rates, and tilted in a different direction. [261][262], According to a UNICEF report, "Still today more than one million people remain displaced, living in crowded camps where livelihoods, shelter and services are still hardly sufficient for children to stay healthy". [165] Aid workers blamed US-controlled airport operations for prioritising the transportation of security troops over rescuers and supplies;[101] evacuation policies favouring citizens of certain nations were also criticised. photography, light detection and ranging (LIDAR) and field However, oceanographically lowered sea levels, as in El Niños, may have determined the times when corals died and recorded these events. We present a new procedure for the determination of rupture complexity from a joint inversion of static and seismic data. seismic hazard. Strong aftershocks hit the area within hours of the initial quake. On January 12, 2010, a Mw 7.0 earthquake struck the Port-au-Prince region of Haiti, killing more than 200,000 people and causing an estimated $8 billion in damages, ~100% of the country's GDP. Both caused significant, damage in Port-au-Prince; several hundred fatalities were directly. The impact of a large magnitude earthquakes (M W > 7.0) and associated aftershocks can be devastating, for example, the 2011 Japan earthquake and Tsunami (Norio et al., 2011) or the Mw 7.0 earthquake in Haiti, 2010, ... Scott (2013) pointed out that it will cost the government of New Zealand $NZ 40 billion ($34 billion) to rebuilding Christchurch, following the February 2011 earthquake that claimed 185 people lives. on the EPGF. We interpret four major coral emergence events as coseismic uplifts uiat occurred near the epicenters and times of large shallow earthquakes on January 5, 1946 (MS=7.3), August 11, 1965 (MS=7.5), October 27, 1971 (MS=7.1) and December 29, 1973 (MS=7.5). "[87][88], Mayor Jean-Yves Jason said that officials argued for hours about what to do with the volume of corpses. In addition, we analyse the historical records and conclude that they are compatible with a tsunami entering the bay. A.S. carried out joint inversions in collaboration with, E.J.F., M.S. For each inverted fault plane, the rake angle is constrained to be between 0, shallower north- and south-dipping fault segments. The earthquake, some 300-500 times more powerful than the magnitude 7.0 quake in Haiti Jan. 12, ruptured at the boundary between the Nazca and South American tectonic plates. The Small Island Developing States (SIDS) of the Caribbean Region are vulnerable to natural hazards including earthquakes, tsunamis and tropical cyclones that can cause widespread devastation. We argue that a combined effect of complex rupture dynamics and topography primarily control this previously rarely documented landslide pattern. [264], On the first anniversary of the earthquake, Haitian-born Michaëlle Jean, who served as the Governor General of Canada at the time of the disaster, and who became United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Special Envoy for Haiti on 8 November 2010, voiced her anger at the slow rate of aid delivery. A report found that, "The conditions in the displaced persons camps are abysmal, particularly for women and girls who too often are victims of gender‐based violence". primary plate-bounding fault systems in Haiti. This will still be on our radar screen long after it's off the crawler at CNN. General counsel for the American Red Cross, David Meltzer, provided investigators with the NGO's official statistics, but would not elaborate on them. This suggests that the mechanisms and processes causing vertical deformation have varied little over the last 106 years. The amplitude of these secondary uplifts is significantly larger than that predicted by models having a single fault in an elastic half-space. "[265] The Interim Haiti Recovery Commission, led by former US President Bill Clinton and Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive, had been set up to facilitate the flow of funds toward reconstruction projects in April 2010, but as of January 2011, no major reconstruction had started. This devastating earthquake caused the death of more than 200,000 people, the injury of about 300,000 people, and left about two million people homeless. [140] Google Earth updated its coverage of Port-au-Prince on 17 January, showing the earthquake-ravaged city. Blue circles show the shallowest, within 25 kilometers of the surface. [266] Venezuela and the US, which promised the major share of reconstruction funds, have disbursed only 24% and 30%, respectively. The situation was complicated by the lack of room on ramps for planes to unload their cargo, and some planes did not have enough fuel to leave. . [136] The American Red Cross set a record for mobile donations, raising US$7 million in 24 hours when they allowed people to send US$10 donations by text messages. [166], The US military acknowledged the non-governmental organizations' complaints concerning flight-operations bias and promised improvement while noting that up to 17 January 600 emergency flights had landed and 50 were diverted; by the first weekend of disaster operations, diversions had been reduced to three on Saturday and two on Sunday. [57], Roads were blocked with road debris or the surfaces broken. The Harvard Centroid Moment Tensor (CMT) mechanism solution indicates lefth-lateral strike slip movement with a fault plane trending toward (strike = 251o ; dip = 70o; rake = 28o). which is inconsistent with simple left-lateral slip on the EPGF and, a further indication of source complexity. Findings-The paper highlighted the significant factors affecting code compliance and why some parties find compliance difficult to achieve. Faulting along the Sistan suture zone of eastern Iran. information is available online at Those flights that were rejected were diverted to the Dominican Republic, and their cargoes were unloaded and taken to Haiti by land. In 2016 Haiti was struck by Hurricane Matthew which leveled entire communities and caused an upsurge in the ongoing cholera epidemic which was introduced to the island by United Nations peacekeepers.

[91][92], Towns in the eastern Dominican Republic began preparing for tens of thousands of refugees, and by 16 January hospitals close to the border had been filled to capacity with Haitians. The earthquake had its epicentre near the town of Lèogane, approximately 15 km from Port-au-Prince, Haiti`s capital, and destroyed a great deal of the infrastructure the population is dependent on. The Dominican website[122] made available to the internet, daily updates on airport information and news from the operations center on the Dominican side. [clarification needed] More than 6% of Haitians have had the disease. and lack of surface rupture on the main fault zone imply that. [222] After a United Nations call for help for the people affected by the earthquake, Canada pledged an additional C$60 million in aid on 19 January 2010, bringing Canada's total contribution to C$135 million. The agreement between the tsunami finite-fault source models and the seismic and tectonic evidence suggests that earthquakes on land, even strike-slip faults, can generate tsunamis by dynamically triggering offshore aftershocks. This suggests that prehistoric earthquake records in transpressive tectonic environments, such as the San Andreas fault through the Transverse Ranges of California, may be missing similarly complex earthquakes. Amongst the widespread devastation and damage throughout Port-au-Prince and elsewhere, vital infrastructure necessary to respond to the disaster was severely damaged or destroyed. Negligence to building code compliance is the primary difference between the impact of 7.0 magnitude earthquake in the New Zealand and the Haiti, where the manageable earthquake hazard in New Zealand turned into a catastrophic disaster in Haiti (Ambraseys and Bilham, 2011. To be honest, I don't know why it hasn't been done. [121] The hospitals in the Dominican Republic were made available; a combined effort of the Airports Department (DA), together with the Dominican Naval Auxiliaries, the UN and other parties formed the Dominican-Haitian Aerial Support Bridge, making the main Dominican airports available for support operations to Haiti. Together with the predominance of shallow off-fault thrusting, the lack of surface deformation implies that remaining shallowshear strain will be released in future surface-rupturing earthquakes on the Enriquillo–Plantain Garden fault zone, as occurred in inferred Holocene and probable historic events. The 1997 surface ruptures followed clear traces of late Quaternary slip on the Abiz fault, and for its northern 50 km re-ruptured fault segments that had slipped in previous earthquakes of Ms 6.0-6.6 in 1936 and 1979. Taking children out of the country would permanently separate thousands of children from their families—a separation that would compound the acute trauma they are already suffering and inflict long-term damage on their chances of recovery.
