The Caribbean is one of the most geologically active spots on earth

Stabroek News(letters) "The beautiful Caribbean is one of the most geologically active spots on earth and seismic activities and processes over the ages have helped raise and sculpt the islands of the Caribbean.

Seismographers believe the earthquake which devastated Haiti two weeks ago is not the last that will be experienced in the region. Experts say historical records suggest there is still a lot of energy remaining in the faults running through the Caribbean after the calamitous Haiti earthquake. According to these scientists, “enough energy remains in the fault system to trigger another earthquake of the same scale” as Haiti’s."
