Today’s Image of the Day from NASA Earth Observatory features Haiti, where displaced survivors of a 2010 earthquake built a new city called Canaan.
In the year after a 7.0-magnitude earthquake destroyed parts of Port-au-Prince, the capital city’s population dropped by about half a million people.
Around 200,000 earthquake victims moved a few miles to the northeast and developed what is now Haiti’s third largest city, Canaan.
