On January 12, 2010, an earthquake struck the western peninsula of the Republic of Haiti, claiming more than 250,000 lives and leaving 1.2 million people homeless. The earthquake, which registered a magnitude of 7.0, destroyed homes, schools, and hospitals and triggered landslides and soil liquefaction that damaged the port and coastal roads. This TCLEE report discusses in detail the effects of this earthquake on lifeline infrastructure systems: water, wastewater, and drainage; electricity; telecommunications; roads and bridges; ports, marine oil terminals, and airports; and hospitals and medical services. Chapters provide an overview of a system's performance, followed by sections describing the system, its damage, the emergency response, and recovery. Each chapter finishes with conclusions and recommendations. This monograph will be of particular interest to civil engineers, managers, planners, and government officials charged with maintaining lifeline infrastructure systems during earthquakes and other natural hazards.
