Purdue professor predicted bad quake

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.
