What were the environmental effects of the haiti earthquake?
- 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.
- Chemicals and oils could leak out of damaged storage facilities.
- Lots of unwanted rubble
- The earthquake destroyed 98% of Haiti's forest cover.
- Thousands of buildings were torn down.
Hope this helps you! :D
