Is Haitian Creole the same as French Creole in other places?

I'm not too familiar with Haitian Creole but I would say it is not the same as French Creole in other places. The one spoken in Reunion Island or in French Guyana are miles away from the one spoken in the West Indies. Even the one spoken in Martinique is different than the one spoken in Guadeloupe (although very similar)... I hope that answers your question.

Earthquakes

Why is Haiti vulnerable to more earthquakes?

The tectonic factors that create the Caribbean islands and haiti are also what causes them to be at risk. Haiti is at the intersection of the caribbean plate and the North American plate with a sinistral (left lateral) strike slip fault to the west and a convergent subduction boundary to the East. Stresses from this oblique convergence will cause earthquakes along the near surface due to the strike slip fault and deeper plutonic earthquakes due to the subduction zone.

Why is there a large amount of damage from earthquakes in Haiti?

Their buildings aren't made of strong enough materials to withstand it. They also don't have the funds to properly build them.

HaitiThe Republic of Haiti is located in the Caribbean basin (which, geographically, is part of North America), in the western one-third of the island of Hispaniola, between the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean. The Caribbean basin is near to Central America (East side).

Hispaniola is the second-largest island in the Greater Antilles (one of the 3 island groups in the Caribbean - it comprises Cuba, Jamaica, Hispaniola and Puerto Rico). It is situated to the west of the Dominican Republic.

Jamaica lies to the west and Cuba to the northwest of Haiti. The offshore islands of Tortuga and Gonâve also belong to Haiti.

How many people died in Haiti's earthquake?

The prime minister estimated that 316,000 had been killed on the 1 year anniversary of the earthquake. International sources still estimate somewhat fewer.

It has been extremely difficult to make these estimates due to the lack of centralized system for reporting in Haiti, as well as the way bodies were disposed of in the aftermath. Many bodies were quickly buried or even thrown in dumpsters and never counted. The exact number - and perhaps even a good estimate - will never be known.

Who was Toussaint L'Ouverture?

Toussaint L'Ouverture [or Louverture], (1743-1803) was an early and important leader of the Haitian Revolution (1791-1804), which cast off French domination of the colony of Saint-Dominique (Haiti). He also extended the revolt to the part of the island then under Spanish rule - now the Dominican Republic.

The slaves in Haiti succeeded in gaining independence from France. But Toussaint L'Ouverture was captured by the French and died while under interrogation in prison in France.

He was the first black general in a European army (French) and is arguably the most influential black person of all time leading this most successful slave rebellion in history.

Slavery
Haiti

Why were slaves in Haiti treated worse than in America?

The French slave owners in Haiti had made a business decision that it was cheaper to treat slaves badly and then replace them with new slaves after they were worked to death, whereas American slave owners generally found it more profitable to keep their slaves in relatively good condition and thereby get more work out of them.
