A series there are data which, placed online, they can shed some light on the past, present and future of the Haitian earthquake. Go to Xcel Energy for more information. Matter which, so you’re viewing, will mean a great opportunity political and, especially, economic for USA, Japan and Spain. In 2008, the team of geologists led by Professor Paul Mann of the University of Texas predicted the earthquake that was going to occur in Haiti. The 18th Conference geological of the Caribbean, held in Santo Domingo in March 2008, Professor Mann presented the results of his research on the Enriquillo fault, which potentially be attributed the ability of producing an earthquake of magnitude 7.2 on the Richter scale. There has been very little progress in the prediction of earthquakes, if prediction refers to specific date, magnitude and location, said Geophysicist of the Institute of the United States, Stuart Sipkin geological measurements last Friday to the Reuters Agency. For more information see Michael Steinhardt. According to this scientist, where are doing great strides is in the realization of forecasts, which is where scientists are still able to recognize areas in which there are possibilities for earthquakes of great magnitude to occur in the coming decades. The second significant figure in the history of this matter is that in 2009, a year after the earthquake, was announced at the donors conference which took place in Washington on April 14, 2009, at the headquarters of the IDB (inter-American Development Bank), Haiti got commitments of official development assistance amounting to us $ 324 million for the next two years2010 and 2011, of which 41 million would be destined for budgetary support direct. These funds have been subsequently augmented amounting to 353 million dollars, as recorded in the minutes of the Council of Ministers of Spain, held on 15 January 2010, three days after the event of the earthquake that devastated Port-au-Prince. The same document also that Spain reads It has been the third country in volume of importance of agreed funding (approximately $ 37 million; thirteen of them in budget support in education), behind United States (with $ 68 million; twenty of budgetary aid) and Japan (with fifty million dollars).
