Excellent points. And thanks for the support all.
Note also that we just had what appears to be a late aftershock in Haiti, too.
UPDATE: Quake came in at 5.1, was revised down to 5.0, and now it has been revised BACK UP to 5.1.
EDIT also: Depth revised to 8 km, which is still, even after review, WAY TOO SHALLOW for that spot.

And some people just don't get it, it seems. The rules have changed after Japan. There was a small swarm of quakes prior to the massive 9+. In
researching the massive quake (biggest in history) 9.5 in Chile, there were foreshocks before it too. And in the OP here, we just saw the foreshocks
with my mentioned thread about Santa Cruz Islands. Ample foreshocks before 8.0.
So no, don't listen anymore peoples to the BS that swarms can't lead to bigger quakes. It's not true. They CAN, they HAVE, and they WILL continue to,
in a certain percentage of quakes. Will they here in this case? I DON'T KNOW!!!
