HA-T1299 : Creating an earthquake early-warning (EEW) system for Haiti.
Project Status: Implementation
Aside from structural refitting, Earthquake Early-Warning systems (EEWs) are the principal method for mitigating loss of life and injury from earthquakes. EEWs provide rapid detection of earthquakes and alerting of people and infrastructure at risk. To limit the impact of future earthquakes, we aim to establish and test the feasibility of a lightweight low-cost EEW system in south Haiti. The EEW system would detect early stages of an earthquake, issue alerts, and provide critical time for users to seek cover or exit a building before the shaking arrives.
