    cchsm: There is a Caribbean fault line that runs along the north Caribbean. Damages in Haiti can be greater than Puerto Rico and the DR because building codes in Haiti are almost non-existent. When you ride thru a neighborhood you see houses under construction by owner and not by contractor. Concrete does not come from a plant but comes from a neighbor. Most houses in Haiti are concrete but have very poor construction.
