" The U.S. Geological Survey is reporting a magnitude 7 earthquake near Haiti's capital of Port-au-Prince.
The U.S. places the epicenter 10 miles southwest of the capital. Unfortunately, the earthquake was relatively shallow at about 6.2 miles below the earth's surface. Generally. the shallower the earthquake, the worse the shaking and damage it causes."
Note: 6.2 miles depth reported by USGS - I thought I saw references made by HAARP theorists that this is somehow a magic number. I have not followed the HAARP stuff.
UPDATE Jan 16, 2010Did a Plucked HAARP Hit Haiti? Here is some interesting reading on HAARP. There is a link to the Jesse Ventura "Conspiracy Theory" episode. Who is wiser - one who examines first then judges second, or one who won't look?
UPDATE JAN 24, 2010 A Haiti Disaster Relief Scenario Was Envisaged by the US Military One Day Before the Earthquake
UPDATE JAN 26, 2010 Report: US Weapon Test Aimed at Iran Caused Haiti Quake
UPDATE JAN 26, 2010 Hugo Chavez Did Not Accuse the U.S. of Causing the Haitian Earthquake
