Strong Earthquake Shakes Northern Haiti

PORT-AU-PRINCE – A magnitude-5.9 earthquake struck northern Haiti on Saturday, the United States Geological Survey said.

The tremor’s epicenter was recorded 20 kilometers (12 miles) from Port-de-Paix in the north of the Caribbean nation at a depth of 15.3 km.

Haitian President Jovenel Moise took to Twitter to confirm that damage had been sustained, urging people to remain calm.

He said he was coordinating with the prime minister to “mobilise all of the Republic’s resources to assist the population” of the affected areas.

The earthquake was felt in the Haitian capital as well as in neighboring Dominican Republic.

On Jan. 12, 2010, Haiti suffered a devastating magnitude-7.0 earthquake which killed more than 300,000 people.
