    Re: Earthquake in Haiti Part 2

    I know sub-6.5 earthquakes are fairly common throughout the year with one occuring almost every 2-3 days, but it just seems like there's an abnormal amount around central America/Carribean lately. This just shows my ignorance, but are these quakes out of the ordinary for the region?

    They experience a seriews of quakes every 200 years. They should be good to go for 200 years after the rebuild. I doubt if their building code will be strengethened very much unless WE build the stuff with adequate rebar.
