What were the environmental effects of the haiti earthquake?

  1. With all the dead bodies lying under the rubble, the things from the bodies could run into the ground and then into the lakes/streams, causing contamination. This means people could get diseases like cholera, etc.
  2. Chemicals and oils could leak out of damaged storage facilities.
  3. Lots of unwanted rubble
  4. The earthquake destroyed 98% of Haiti's forest cover.
  5. Thousands of buildings were torn down.

Hope this helps you! :D
