By Staff (kft, rc, apr), AlterPresse. More than five tremors of magnitude 3.4 to 5.1 have shaken the Dominican Republic since the new year. A study by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) suggests that Haiti’s January 12, 2010 earthquake might represent the start of a new seismic cycle for the Enriquillo fault system, and the island might suffer strong earthquakes in coming years.

Nevertheless, throngs of shrimp and sea anemones live around these vents.
