USGS Rapid Response to Haiti

Detailed Description

Not all places of business or residence collapsed or suffered serious damage following the magnitude-7 earthquake that struck Haiti on Jan. 12, 2010. Here, an auto parts store in Port-au-Prince is open for business on January 28, 2010, sixteen days after the earthquake. This street still contains trash and litter due to lack of public services.
