Hi Natasha

I don't have the short and long term responses for Haiti. I did how how earthquakes affect people in different ways.  I did short term responses for general volcanoes and I will comment those underneath. For long term responses for Sakurajima in Japan and Montserrat in the Caribean. Comment if you want them.

Short term responses:

  • Blankets - to keep people warm
  • Garbage bags - so infection doesn't spread
  • Antibiotics - to treat diseases
  • Baby food - so children can eat
  • Canned food - doesn't go off
  • Generators - for hospitals

Hope this helps :)
