Reports of continuing aftershocks over the last week have me worried that it may not be over yet. This morning, a 6.1 magnitude aftershock was felt, frightening already stressed people on the ground.
What worries me is the possibility that last week’s 7.0 was actually a foreshock and something worse is yet to come. It’s happened before.
There are actually two major fault lines in Haiti, one, the Enriquillo Fault Line, is the one that triggered last week’s devastating 7.0 magnitude earthquake. The other, an unnamed fault north of the Enriquillo, has been accumulating tension for 800 years and is, essentially “overdue”. ((See this excellent article on Newsweek))
