I have been asked where to donate for #earthquake response efforts in #Haiti. I donated to @PIH & @StBonifaceHaiti Both partner with local communities and govt to provide healthcare to those in greatest need. #haitiearthquake #globalhealth 💔 cc: @CPSolvers @DxRxEdu @rabihmgeha…
@StBonifaceHaiti is probably the best-resourced hospital in the affected region. I visited in 2012 and what was already an extraordinary facility and group of talented dedicated staff has only grown.…

@PIH has collaborated with rural communities and the Ministry of Health in Haiti for over 30 years. They were an integral part of the response to the 2010 earthquake, subsequent cholera outbreak, and rebuilding efforts.

A catastrophic #earthquake in 2010 on this fault system in #Haiti killed ~250k people. It just ruptured again, this time to the west. Hopefully the lower population density in this region, further from Port-au-Prince, will mitigate the impact. 😧

#tectoplot #haitiearthquake
The updated focal mechanism for the earthquake from GFZ indicates the rupture was on land, and oblique thrust - similar to the overall 2010 event, which combines a mostly strike-slip mainshock with a cluster of smaller thrust earthquakes.

#tectoplot #haitiearthquake
Scattered aftershocks from the 2010 earthquake were still occurring up through this year, although none were close in magnitude to the mainshock.

Short thread about my experiences in the aftermath of the #HaitiEarthquake , 10 years ago to the day. Quake hit at 16.53 local time, 21.53 GMT, and lasted less than 30 seconds. I worked as a logistics advisor for @Concern at the time and flew out the next day.
I’d worked in #Haiti in 2008 (loved it, such a beautiful place, such friendly people) so I knew the team of 100 staff. Miraculously only 1 had died. Nearly all had lost their homes tho. And all were severely traumatised.
I had to fly into Santo Domingo cos Port au Prince airport was shut down. I managed to hitchhike into P au P on some random private jet I flagged down on the runway in SD. Don’t know who any of these people are in the photo with me. There’s me smiling nervously.
