Haiti Another Earthquake PDF Print E-mail

A shocking news from Haiti. Another earthquake hits haiti with a 6.1 magnitude earthquake. Before this 6.1 magnitude earthquake, Haiti is already hit by an earthquake last January 12, 2010, a 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck Haiti, with its epicenter 16 miles west of the capital and largest city, Port-au-Prince, which was devastated.

Approximately two hundred thousand people were killed, although it will take time to determine the exact number of dead; the Presidential palace, Parliament and many other important structures were destroyed, along with countless homes, businesses, hospitals, schools and shantytowns.

Widespread damage resulted from the quake, with a majority of buildings collapsing due to poor structural design and construction. The capital city was devastated.

The Presidential Palace was badly damaged, with the second floor entirely collapsing onto the first floor; the Haitan Parliament building and the National Cathedral were also destroyed.
