On 14 August 2021, a 7.2-magnitude earthquake struck south-western Haiti, causing loss of life and widespread damage in the peninsula, and affecting thousands of people.

To understand how the disaster has affected population movements, Flowminder, in collaboration with Digicel Haiti, has produced a set of preliminary analyses using de-identified and aggregated mobile operator data provided by Digicel Haiti. These data can help generate information on population density and mobility that can be used to determine where groups of people were, and where they moved following the earthquake.
