FEWW Comment: The timing of this event may have been particularly “lucky” for the survivors of Haiti earthquake.
First, the event occurred at 04:53:09 PM local time when large numbers of people would have been out and about.
Second, the earthquake occurred on land. An offshore quake could have generated a major tsunami that would have worsened the extent of the catastrophe.
FEWW Initial Estimate of EQ casualties
However, the moderators believe up to 20,000 people may have been killed or injured as a result of the Haitian catastrophe caused by the earthquake and its aftershocks.
