On the 12 January 2010 an earthquake measuring 7.0 on the Richter scale struck Haiti. The epicentre was just 25 km west of the capital Port-au-Prince and the focus was only 13km below the surface. The city and the surrounding area ( up to 56 km SW of the capital) were affected by strong aftershocks ( up to 5.9 on the Richter scale & only 9 Km in depth). In total around 75% of the population were affected, about 230,000 were killed, 250,000 were injured and around a million people were made homeless.
This resource is excellent for those of you looking at EQs at Level 1.

Level 1 Population Query

Hi there;

At the start of the examination it says ” In the box below, name a population case study (studies) that you will use to answer ALL the questions”
A discussion colleagues and I are having does it mean:
You select and only use one example throughout the paper?
If you have studied more than one example e.g. NZ and India, could you use NZ as your example in two of the 3 questions, and in the third India?
Can you use both examples to assist in any of your answers?
Currently, we play safe and say only use one throughout.
Does anyone know which of the 3 complies with the needs set?
