Deadliest Earthquakes

About the Show

In 2010, massive earthquakes struck Haiti, Chile, Mexico, California, Indonesia and India, resulting in one of the worst annual death tolls ever recorded from such natural disasters. This rash of earthquakes was a shocking reminder of the deadly forces locked up in the earth's crust. Is there any link between all these disasters, and are scientists making progress in predicting when the next quake will strike? This documentary's search for answers begins with exclusive coverage shot in Haiti as a team of US geologists enters the country just a few days after the 2010 disaster. They were able to predict the scale of the tragedy two years before it struck, yet were powerless to pinpoint the exact date.
