An interesting almost "ripple" effect with the quakes moving east across the planet. I think I'd avoid travel to Haiti for a while, not that we had plans...

Just keep it away from the SF Bay Area please...have tickets to playoff games 3 & 4 (SJ vs StL) and I don't want to miss them due to "natural" disaster. :smile-new:
