The First of Many?

Via Instapundit comes this NYT piece that suggests that the recent earthquakes in Haiti are the first in a protracted cycle similar to one that occurred in colonial times. According to the articles map, Cuba, Jamaica and Hispaniola are right on the fault in question and PuertoRico is is in danger as well. The USGS page on Puerto Ricos earthquakes is here.  Note that tsunamis have historically figured in the area as well. 

Hopefully we can learn lessons from this response as we may well need them in the coming years.
