On January 12, 2010, as all the world knows, a devastating earthquake struck Haiti. Yet fewer realize that just two years earlier, the quake had been forecast with amazing accuracy. In exclusive coverage, NOVA scienceNOW accompanies a team of U.S. geologists into Haiti after the tragedy, trying to determine if more quakes are coming. The film team then heads to California, where scientists are uncovering hints of massive destruction yet to come.
