Haiti Earthquake – video of the liquefaction damage to the main dockyard in Port-au-Prince

Posted by Dave Petley

Following up on my post yesterday on the nature of the liquefaction damage to the main container port in Port-au-Prince, CNN has a video from the site. The video is here:


The recording appears to have been shot in this area (this is the post earthquake Google Geoeye imagery):

The video clearly shows the liquefaction features, the collapsed wharves and the damaged cranes and notes how much work is needed to reinstate all of this. There is no sign on the video that this work has started.
