EERI Response to M7.2 Earthquake in Nippes, Haiti

On August 14, 2021, a M7.2 earthquake struck Nippes, Haiti. The EERI community extends its sympathy to the victims as rescue and relief work continues.

EERI is currently monitoring the situation from media reports and notes from colleagues in the impacted region as part of its Learning from Earthquakes Program. At this time, EERI does not have plans to deploy a reconnaissance team. However, EERI has established an LFE event page to provide information about the earthquake impacts. Resources available there include:

  • StEER engineering observations data map

  • Links to satellite imagery collected for this event

  • Link to remote sensing products from NASA

The virtual clearinghouse for the January 2010 M 7.0 Haiti earthquake is archived at the Learning from Earthquakes website here.
