Satellite Photos of Haiti Before and After the Earthquake. InShare0 The pictures and video from on-the-ground reports in Haiti following the magnitude 7 earthquake Tuesday are truly heartbreaking.

Satellite Photos of Haiti Before and After the Earthquake

But it is difficult to imagine the full extent of the damage to that country and its capital, Port-au-Prince, in particular. These new satellite images released Wednesday by Google and GeoEye show the devastation from above, giving a new view of the severity of this disaster. We’ve posted some of the images here. You can also scan the entire city with Google Earth. Mozilla Firefox. Earthquakes Cause over 1700 Deaths in 2009 (1/8/2010 11. At least 1783 deaths worldwide resulted from earthquake activity in 2009.

Earthquakes Cause over 1700 Deaths in 2009 (1/8/2010 11

The deadliest earthquake of the year was a magnitude 7.5 event that killed approximately 1117 people in southern Sumatra, Indonesia on Sept. 30, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and confirmed by the United Nations Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). However, the number of earthquake-related fatalities in 2009 was far less than the 2008 count of over 88,000. Prim.net : Portail de la prévention des Risques Majeurs.

Earthquake Hazards Program National Earthquake Information Center - NEIC The mission of the National Earthquake Information Center (NEIC) is to determine rapidly the location and size of all destructive earthquakes worldwide and to immediately disseminate this information to concerned national and international agencies, scientists, and the general public.

National Earthquake Information Center - NEIC

The NEIC compiles and maintains an extensive, global seismic database on earthquake parameters and their effects that serves as a solid foundation for basic and applied earth science research. Earthquake Data Available from the NEIC Share this page: Fact Sheet 2006-3016: Earthquake Hazards. Earthquakes are one of the most costly natural hazards faced by the Nation, posing a significant risk to 75 million Americans in 39 States.

Fact Sheet 2006-3016: Earthquake Hazards

The risks that earthquakes pose to society, including death, injury, and economic loss, can be greatly reduced by (1) better planning, construction, and mitigation practices before earthquakes happen, and (2) providing critical and timely information to improve response after they occur. As part of the multi-agency National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has the lead Federal responsibility to provide notification of earthquakes in order to enhance public safety and to reduce losses through effective forecasts based on the best possible scientific information. PAGER - Prompt Assessment of Global Earthquakes for Response. The PAGER system provides fatality and economic loss impact estimates following significant earthquakes worldwide.

PAGER - Prompt Assessment of Global Earthquakes for Response

Links to PAGER results for earthquakes occurring within the last 7 days are contained below. The earthquakes are color-coded by the higher of two impact scales - fatalities and economic losses. These impact scales are broken up into four categories. Southern San Andreas ShakeOut Scenario. ShakeOut VideosSimulations developed by the Southern California Earthquake Center ShakeOut Simulation workgroup.

Southern San Andreas ShakeOut Scenario

Simulation by Rob Graves, URS/SCEC. Visualization by Geoff Ely, USC/SCEC.Watch on YouTube Ground shaking during a magnitude 7.8 earthquake on the southern San Andreas fault; red indicates areas of strongest ground shaking. The 2008 Great Southern California ShakeOut was based on a potential magnitude 7.8 earthquake on the southern San Andreas Fault— approximately 5,000 times larger than the magnitude 5.4 earthquake that shook southern California on July 29, 2008. It’s not a matter of if an earthquake of this size will happen—but when. Multimedia Gallery: (Video) Title: Preparedness Now Description: This film takes you on a visceral journey through the USGS ShakeOut Earthquake Scenario.

The film was created by the USGS Multi-Hazards Demonstration Project in cooperation with the Designmatters program at Art Center to depict the physical, social, and economic consequences of the most comprehensive earthquake scenario ever created. The film gives the viewers a sense of what will be happening and inspires them to prepare and mitigate for a faster recovery. 2008 Bay Area Earthquake Probabilities. In April 2008, scientists and engineers released a new earthquake forecast for the State of California called the Uniform California Earthquake Rupture Forecast (UCERF).

2008 Bay Area Earthquake Probabilities

Compiled by USGS, Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC), and the California Geological Survey (CGS), with support from the California Earthquake Authority, it updates the earthquake forecast made for the greater San Francisco Bay Area by the 2002 Working Group for California Earthquake Probabilities. The accompanying figure shows the updated probabilities for earthquakes of magnitude 6.7 or greater in the next 30 years. The overall probability of a magnitude 6.7 or greater earthquake in the Greater Bay Area is 63%, about 2 out of 3, which is very close to the probability of 62% obtained by the 2002 Working Group. The earthquake probability is highest for the Hayward-Rodgers Creek Fault system, 31%, or nearly 1 out of 3.
