The earthquake in Haiti, Puerto Rico — activity is observed on the Caribbean plate

Seven earthquakes swept through the Caribbean islands, and on Saturday another case in Haiti, raising concern among experts about the possible seismic reactivation in the area. "For a few days we have seen unusual activity that may be associated with the subduction of the Caribbean tectonic plate" — said seismologist Bruce Cleaver. An earthquake measuring 4.3 occurred south of Haiti early this morning. Despite the damage people panicked. For years, experts feared the probability of a powerful earthquake and subsequent tsunami in the Caribbean. Currently, there is no early warning system for tsunamis. Source: RSOE
