Record Quaking, Deadly Shaking


Haitians piled bodies along the devastated streets of their capital after a catastrophic 7.0 earthquake struck on January 12, 2010. The temblor flattened the president’s palace and the main prison, its cathedral, hospitals, schools and thousands of homes. Untold numbers were trapped. When the final tallies came in, the quake killed at least 230,000 people. Numerous aftershocks and the inevitable diseases that followed took even more lives and continue today. Around three million Haitians – a third of the country’s population – were affected by this quake and two million required food assistance.

*NOTES: At the end of September 2003, the USGS adjusted earthquake global averages for magnitudes 4, 5, 6 and 7. Most have increased, one magnitude decreased in shaker averages. This indicates an overall increase in earthquake activity. To get a fair comparison, both the "old" and "new" averages are included in the chart above. For a bottom line summary just check the two columns with red arrows at the top.

The exact number of deaths from the January 26, 2001 India earthquake will never be known. According to the Red Cross, "
Death toll reports vary widely, with some ranging from more 20,000 to as many as 100,000."
