Scientists say Haiti could be hit by another earthquake soon

The chance of another big earthquake in Haiti in the near future is great enough that people in Port-au-Prince should sleep in tents, geologists said Monday. The probability of an aftershock of magnitude 7 or greater in Haiti in the next 30 days is 3 percent, the probability of one magnitude 6 or greater is 25 percent, and of one magnitude 5 or greater is about 90 percent, according to a report by the United States Geological Survey.
