Haiti - Security : Strengthening of the seismic monitoring network
To this end, additional seismic equipment consisting of two complete seismological stations and 6 seismometers and 6 Gurlap brand accelerometers, obtained through technical and financial assistance from Mexico, Spain and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) will complement the existing network which currently covers the departments of North, West, South-East and Center.
This equipment will be distributed, on the one hand, in the departments of Grande-Anse in Jérémie and in the North-West to the Mole Saint-Nicolas and on the other hand, in the areas that present some seismic activity in recent times. Departments not yet covered, such as Artibonite, Nippes and the South remain priority.
