Six Years Later..

It’s been six years since the April 2015 Nepal Earthquake. Now DEEP, has become a go-to tool for leading global humanitarian organizations, including UNHCR, UNICEF, UN OCHA, and the IFRC.

Earthquake in Haiti

In 2021, eleven years after Haiti’s devastating 2010 earthquake, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck southwestern Haiti on 14 August at 8:30 am local time. As of 18 August, the latest tolls have risen to more than 2,100 dead and more than 9,900 people injured. (UN OCHA) According to Haitian Civil Protection, more than 37,300 homes have been destroyed and 46,000 have sustained damages. While less catastrophic than the 2010 earthquake, its impact is still devastating amid ongoing social and political upheaval. (UN OCHA)
