Years ago my ex had work in New Caledonia. He said it was a strange place where one side of the island was lush and the other side was desert like. Having said that, the number of earthquakes there is worrisome.

Added later:
A large enough quake at the right spot along mid Atlantic tectonic plate has the potential for massive destruction.
Scroll down in link below to the Canary Islands and read about a fissure. (please remember this is only a potential disaster....okay)
