Deadliest Earthquakes

THE HISTORY CHANNEL – Thursday 20 December, 9.30pm

In 2010, massive earthquakes struck Haiti, Chile, Mexico, California, Indonesia, and India, adding up to one of the worst annual death tolls ever recorded. Is there any link between all these disasters? Are scientists making progress in predicting when the next quake will strike? We start with Haiti as a team of U.S. geologists first enters the country just a few days after the disaster. A month later we follow a second team of scientists as they investigate the Chilean earthquake that was 100 times more powerful than the quake that struck Haiti.
