According toÂ Fox News, Carriann Bedwell, U.S. Geological Survey and National Earthquake Information Center geophysicist, stated, â€œTwenty millimeters a year of slippage is very small, and that's not what people felt. The two sides of the fault line moved past each other in an east-west direction and that's what caused the energy release and the Haiti earthquakes.â€Â
