Magnitude 7.0 - HAITI REGION from USGS

Read entire article here:

" The location and focal mechanism of the earthquake are consistent with the event having occurred as left-lateral strike slip faulting on the Enriquillo-Plaintain Garden fault system. This fault system accommodates about 7 mm/y, nearly half the overall motion between the Caribbean plate and North America plate.

The Enriquillo-Plaintain Garden fault system has not produced a major earthquake in recent decades. The EPGFZ is the likely source of historical large earthquakes in 1860, 1770, 1761, 1751, 1684, 1673, and 1618, though none of these has been confirmed in the field as associated with this fault."
Note: The page contains lots of great info. I'm not into the HAARP theories - but I'm not in a position to criticize people for being so-called "conspiracy theorists." Regardless there is great information at this webpage to take into consideration from the USGS
