Leogane, the epicenter of the 7.0 magnitude Earthquake

Léogâne was at the epicenter of the 7.0 magnitude 12 January 2010 earthquake
Léogâne's second bout with an earthquake measuring 7.0 or higher on the Richter scale was more devastating for the small town than it was for anywhere else in Haiti. Between 80-90% of the infrastructure, including all government buildings, a precious school and part of a hospital were lost.
