Damn, Haiti. What'd y'all do to piss God off this time?
 
2010-01-12 05:13:05 PM
At least no one is likely to be killed by falling trees.
 
2010-01-12 05:14:50 PM
Hope this doesn't destroy Haiti's flourishing economy

make me some tea: Damn, Haiti. What'd y'all do to piss God off this time?

They were Haitin'.
 
2010-01-12 05:30:39 PM
Is there even a fault line there?
 
2010-01-12 05:32:52 PM
oh.. I guess there is. hmm.
 
2010-01-12 05:38:04 PM
I HAITS the Colonel!
/wee biddy eyes
 
2010-01-12 05:38:22 PM
Ahh my plan worked to level the slums and put up a fancy gated community.
 
2010-01-12 05:38:35 PM
Mmmm this sounds like its going to be ugly... 3mil people living in an area likely subject to severe damage?
 
2010-01-12 05:39:13 PM
Damages expected to be in the tens of dollars...
 
2010-01-12 05:39:14 PM
lotta big quakes lately.

not a good sign, really.

They feel me rollin', they Hatian.

utsagrad123: Hope this doesn't destroy Haiti's flourishing economy

Yeah. This might have done dozens of dollars worth of damage.

10 miles from Port-a-Potty. Big quake. Poor area. Easy to damage. This does not bode well.

Why is the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center reporting on this when Haiti and anything which would be effected by a resulting tsunami is in the Atlantic?
 
2010-01-12 05:40:03 PM
Didn't believe your life could get suckier?
 
2010-01-12 05:40:08 PM
Would we even notice the difference in the before and after photos of Port au Prince?
 
2010-01-12 05:40:12 PM
Will this generate a tsunami that will wipe out Florida? We can only hope.

THE END OF TIMES!

i don't think they mentioned that Haiti is a poor country....

Damn you! *shakes tiny fist*

you noticed that too?

they're hitting all around.

The phrase "Humanitarian nightmare" comes to mind.

AP reporting a hospital collapsed in P-a-P...

Save the Keys, the rest... meh.
 
2010-01-12 05:40:59 PM
The nations of the world would normally send international aid of some sort. But Haiti already has all of the aids it can handle...
 
2010-01-12 05:41:04 PM
they'd probably rather live in florida anyway.
 
2010-01-12 05:41:09 PM
Reports of a Hospital Collapse, but this is Haiti, so if may have just fallen down on its own account.

There's nothing really to damage. No tall buildings to fall on them, no highways to collapse, no cars to crash. At worst, lots of people will have to prop up their shanty walls again and find a new stick to hold up the straw roof.

Tsunami warnings out. Wonder what the PTP will do with the detainees at Gitmo who live in cells just a few feet above sea level only a few hundred miles away from the epicenter? The higher ground is over the fence in Cuba. How could you provide security for a few hours while you evacuate them? Where would you evacuate them? Will they all drown in a tsunami?
 
2010-01-12 05:42:18 PM
I think the death toll on this is going to be bad. An earthquake in a heavily populated area of an impoverished country that normally doesn't get earthquakes? This will be BAD.
 
2010-01-12 05:42:26 PM
CNN^ reports a tsunami watch is on for Haiti and parts of Cuba, the Dominican Republic and the Bahamas, then says not to worry because historical data suggests a destructive, widespread tsunami was not a threat, the USGS reported.

Glad I quit vacationing in the Caribbean during winter.

Yeah they don't exactly have steel reinforcement in their concrete structures or the kind of things developed nations have. This could be a very bad deal.

Yikes the first report of damage is a hospital collapse?? If God were real, they need his help.

"affected"
 
2010-01-12 05:43:50 PM
This will not end well.

Earthquakes are measured on a logarithmic system: a Log 7.0 is 10 tmeas as powerful as a Log 6.0, and as screwd up as Haiti already is, this thing is sure to kill a hell of a lot of people.
 
2010-01-12 05:44:25 PM
You snaky assholes. This has the potential be a huge disaster. Huge numbers of people could be killed. Homes could be destroyed. Loved ones lost.

All it takes for the damn tidal wave to wash the Haitans towards the US.

Well, it IS earthquake season, after all.

gm: Why is the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center reporting on this when Haiti and anything which would be effected by a resulting tsunami is in the Atlantic?

Most tsunamis that affect the US are in the Pacific, so that's where the warning center is. Just like the national hurricane center is in Florida, even though they've been known to happen on the West Coast.

Aw shiat. I must've left the earthquake generator on again. I always do that.

Well, it would solve that pesky Gitmo problem...

Should we panic or should we prepare for new "real estate" to open up from this impending Tsunami?
 
2010-01-12 05:46:42 PM
gm: Why is the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center reporting on this when Haiti and anything which would be effected by a resulting tsunami is in the Atlantic?

Because the Pacific is where most of the bad earthquake/tsunami stuff happens, hence there's the nearest station. Ring of fire, and all that.

You win the thread. That's what we call "stealth snark."
