Haiti Earthquake Facts can be quite diverse, and often incongruous, or contradictory. There is an excellent reason for this. The Haiti Earthquake had such a devastating impact on the country’s infrastructure, it is only now, some 3 years later beginning to return to a level of functionality resembling the pre-earthquake period. The main quake, which claimed more than 300,000 lives, shook, the country on January 12, 2010, with a magnitude 7 on the Richter scale.
The Haiti Earthquake Facts which came out in the media where sketchy and inconsistent, yet there was alot of media on the ground within days. But their focus was the human dramas unfolding before their eyes, the scope of human suffering would shock even the most jaded reporters.
Today there are many sites and reports that have narrowed the errors and brought some consistency to the information.
One thing is certain, the Haitian Earthquake, will take a generation to repair the damages caused. But it will also provide an opportunity to improve much of the country’s infrastructure. The fact is the world has taken notice of Haiti, and the relief efforts are now going beyond simple humanitarian aid, and moving into a new area of development.

Of course the media is slow to capture this, as it does not generate ratings, the way crying babies, and suffering does. So we decided it was necessary to make a documentary setting some of the Haiti Earthquake facts straight, we hope you enjoy it, we certainly believe you will learn a thing or two you may have never heard in the media. Thanks.
