What is it like to witness an earthquake? How is its reporting and history formed from different people's perspectives of the event? This book uses first-hand accounts from eyewitnesses, survivors, the emergency services, scientists and the media to describe what happened before, during and after the Haiti earthquake of 2010. We also look at the science: the facts, the timeline and the physical causes and effects of the earthquake. Why was the disaster in Haiti unique? How did it compare to other earthquakes? And how long will the clean-up take?
