5.2-Magnitude Aftershock Rattles Northern Haiti

At least 11 people have been killed when a magnitude 5.9 quake struck close to the northermost tip of Haiti, roughly 20km west-northwest of Port-de-Paix. "It was at the same location", said Paul Caruso, a geophysicist with the USGS.

The country's civil protection agency issued a statement saying several people were injured and some houses destroyed in Port-de-Paix, Gros Morne, Chansolme and Turtle Island.

She said that about 500 students would not be able to return to school today.

Other rescue workers reported the collapse of part of a hospital and an auditorium as the quake hit on a rainy evening.

President Jovenel Moise said he and Prime Minister Jean-Henry Ceant had reached "the zone affected by the natural disaster to bring assistance to the population" and coordinate relief efforts.

The tremor was also felt in the neighbouring Dominican Republic and in eastern Cuba. The epicentre of the quake was about 19 km, north-west of the city of Port-de-Paix.

The quake was one of the strongest in Haiti since 2010 when a magnitude 7 left about 300-thousand people dead.

President Jovenel Moise took to Twitter to urge Haitians to "remain calm", and said local and regional authorities were assisting those in need.

In Gros-Morne, some people walked along the street while looking up at the cracked exterior walls of homes.

Meanwhile, dozens of people could be seen through debris before hauling away rebar to recycle and sell.

Another four people died in and around the town of Gros-Morne further south, including a boy struck by a falling building, mayor Jean Renel Tide said.

Damage was also reported at the Saint-Michel church in Plaisance and the police station in Port-de-Paix.

"I congratulate the citizens for their show of solidarity and support", Moise said in a Twitter message, vowing to ensure that the government was doing everything possible to help victims.

The devastating 7.0-magnitude quake in January 2010 left more than 1.5 people homeless.
