Haiti's capital shattered by powerful earthquake

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/cb_haiti_earthquake

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – Dazed and injured Haitians sat on darkened streets pleading for help Wednesday and untold numbers were trapped in tons of rubble brought down by the strongest earthquake to hit this poor Caribbean nation in more than 200 years.

The extent of destruction from Tuesday afternoon's 7.0-magnitude tremor was far from clear — and estimating the number of casualties was impossible, save for the dead lying among thousands of collapsed buildings in Haiti's capital.

The ornate National Palace crumbled into itself, the headquarters of the U.N. peacekeeping mission collapsed, and swaths of rickety shacks lay in shambles. Clouds of dust thrown up by falling buildings choked Port-au-Prince for hours.

The United States and other nations began organizing relief efforts, alerting search teams and gathering supplies that will be badly needed in Haiti, the Western Hemisphere's poorest country.

USGS geophysicist Kristin Marano called it the strongest earthquake since 1770 in what is now Haiti.

Haiti quake: The worst of places for a big tremor




It was immediately obvious that Tuesday's quake in Haiti would be an appalling natural disaster.

A large tremor centred on an impoverished country with little recent experience or preparedness for such a large event.

The buildings in the quake zones of major industrialised nations sit on damping systems that allow them to ride out tremors that not only shake them back and forth but also twist them in the same movement.

The simplest concrete structures in the capital of Port-au-Prince will have crumpled under the same shear strain.

Seismometers recorded a preliminary magnitude of 7.0 at 1653 local time (2153 GMT).

The epicentre's proximity to Port-au-Prince - 15km (10 miles) - and the focus (or depth) of just 8km (5 miles) will have ensured the destructive forces were at their most intense.

A series of strong aftershocks - several larger than Magnitude 5.0 - will have compounded the devastation.




But Tuesday's event is thought to be the strongest earthquake on the land now called Haiti in more than 100 years.

The greater geological setting is the northern boundary between the Caribbean and North America tectonic plates where vast slabs of the Earth's surface grind past each other in a horizontal motion.

This strike-slip fault system, as geophysicists call it, experiences a movement of about 20mm per year.

The Caribbean plate appears to shift eastward with respect to the North America plate.

In the region where this quake occurred, the fault system has a series of minor branches, the two main ones in Haiti being the Septentrional fault in the north and the Enriquillo-Plaintain Garden fault in the south.

Seismic data suggests Tuesday's quake was on the Enriquillo-Plaintain Garden fault.

The US Geological Survey says it has been the likely source of historical large tremors in 1860, 1770, 1761, 1751, 1684, 1673, and 1618.

Nyamuragira Volcano, Democratic Republic of Congo
Eruptions continue at Nyamuragira volcano in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Lava could cover the Goma and Sake road within weeks. Ash and gas emissions from the volcano have caused health problems for residents. Drinking water from open springs and rainwater catchments in Sake, Kingi and Rusayo have been contaminated by ash. Health centres at Sake and Rusayo have reported increasing cases of diarrhoea, and eye diseases. People around the volcano have reported death of domestic animals and damage to crops. It is estimated that 52,096 people are affected, including: 7,901 from Mugunga (Mumbabiro), 13, 000 from Rusayo and 31,195 from Sake & Kingi localities.

Malawi Earthquake Swarm
A swarm of earthquakes has hit Malawi in the African Rift Valley. On 20th December 2009 a magnitude 6.0 earthquake hit near the town of Karonga in Malawi. The earthquake damaged school buildings, houses, police stations, health centers and boreholes. Since December 2009 at least 30 earthquakes have hit the northern district of Karonga, killing four people, injuring at least 180 and affecting 145,000 others. These are the largest earthquakes in the area since 1966 when a magnitude 6.2 earthquake hit. Earthquake swarms often precede volcanic eruptions. The closest volcano to the earthquakes is Rungwe, 90 km NNW in Tanzania.

Haiti Earthquake (mag 7.0)
A major earthquake (magnitude 7.0) hit Port Au Prince, Haiti on Tuesday 12th January 2010 at 04:53 pm. Many buildings have collapsed in the capital, causing tens of thousands of casualties, and deaths. The earthquake hit along the Enriquillo-Plantain Garden fault zone (EPGFZ) which extends from Jamaica through the southern peninsula of Haiti to the Dominican Republic. The closest active volcanoes to the earthquake epicentre are located more than 1000 km away, and includes Soufriere Hills on Montserrat.

Soufriere Hills Volcano, Montserrat
Large pyroclastic flows occurred at Soufriere Hills volcano at 2:49 pm on 8th January 2010. The pyroclastic flows were caused by a collapsing tephra column, similar to the events in the summer of 1997. The flows traveled northeast down Whites Bottom Ghaut and reached the sea. The flow which moved down Tuitts Ghaut stopped a few hundred metres from the sea. Pyroclastic flows also traveled northwest down Tyers Ghaut and into the Belham valley. The event lasted 11 minutes and was not preceded by seismic activity. Ashfall occurred on the northwestern side of the volcano. Residents said it was one of the largest eruptions they have witnessed at the volcano, since its reawakening in 1995. At 1:28 am on 10th January there was another explosion at the volcano. The seismic signal lasted 7 minutes. The eruption produced pyroclastic flows which traveled rapidly northeast down White Bottom and Tuitts Ghaut. Flows also moved northwest down Tyers Ghaut and down the Gages valley towards Plymouth. A third smaller explosion occurred at 8:27 pm on 10th January. Scientists don't believe there was a major collapse of the dome, but a significant amount of material was lost. Hazard level 4 remains in place around the volcano, which means there is no access allowed in zone C, and only daytime access to zone B.

Turrialba Volcano, Costa Rica
A new crater has formed on the eastern side of the summit of Turrialba volcano, Costa Rica, along with a new fissure 65 x 20 m in diameter on the western side of the summit. Blocks from the eruption on 5th January were ejected towards the west. Thirty-six people have been evacuated from the slopes of the volcano. Residents are being warned to stay at least 6 km from the crater.

Solomon Islands Earthquake (mag 6.3)
A large earthquake (magnitude 6.3) hit the Solomon Islands today at 4:51 pm local time. The epicentre was located 40 km SW of Kavachi volcano. Kavachi is a shallow submarine volcano which has formed islands on 9 occasions. Kavachi volcano is located on the Pacific plate only 30 km northeast of its convergent boundary with the downgoing Indo-Australian plate.

Turrialba Volcano, Costa Rica
Phreatic eruptions at Turrialba volcano, Costa Rica occurred from the west crater. Changes in the crater have occurred over the past four years, including ground cracking, landslides and fumaroles. Ashfall within 4 km of the crater consisted of pulverized old rock, and didn't include any juvenile magmatic material. Ashfall on farming land may cause problems for cattle if contaminated grass is injested. Residents have been warned of the adverse effects of ash on food crops, and machinery.

The eruption continues at Nyamuragira volcano in the Democratic Republic of Congo. After 4 days lava has traveled 21 kilometers, and is only 7 kilometers from the Goma-Sake road. Four craters were active at the beginning of the eruption. The lava flows are still within the boundaries of Virunga National Park. Volcanologists from Goma said lava could reach the Goma-Sake road within 2 to 3 days. Chimpanzees of Tongo have not been harmed.
