Purdue professor predicted bad quake

January 14, 2010

Purdue University Professor Eric Calais said he predicted the Haiti earthquake was going to be bad. The professor of geophysics has done years of research on the tenuous fault line that runs through Haiti. He spent time during the past 10 years in Haiti gathering data on movement of the earth's crust. Calais said he took his concerns to top Haiti officials, but government upheaval and lack of funding caused little to be done.
