Remembering 2010 Earthquake in Haiti - Regional Roadmap for Urban Seismic Risk Management in the Caribbean http://cdema.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1651:remembering-2010-earthquake-in-haiti-regional-roadmap-for-urban-seismic-risk-management-in-the-caribbean&catid=44:barbados&Itemid=270 http://cdema.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1651:remembering-2010-earthquake-in-haiti-regional-roadmap-for-urban-seismic-risk-management-in-the-caribbean&catid=44:barbados&Itemid=270 Bridgetown, Barbados, January 12th, 2017 - Today January 12, 2017 marks the 6th anniversary of the magnitude 7.0 earthquake that devastated Haiti. The earthquake affected over 3 million people and claimed up to 150,000 lives.

Earthquakes rank among the highest in potential to cause the most destruction in one event in the Caribbean. Many countries within the Caribbean Region are threatened by future large earthquakes which will occur when strain accumulation on segments of the adjacent tectonic plate boundary exceeds breaking point. To a large extent, the resulting damage will depend on the choice of risk management measures that are implemented to evade or reduce vulnerability to strong ground shaking. ]]>
