To Add Insult to Injury
Haiti Was Again Hit
This Morning At 6:03am With A 6.1 Quake
This Wednesday morning at the Port-Au-Prince, Haiti unfortunately a powerful aftershock struck Haiti at 6:03 am. The quake was registered at a 6.1 and began shaking buildings and sending screaming people running into the streets only eight days after the country's capital was devastated by a major earthquake. The aftershock hit about 35 miles (56 kilometers) northwest of the capital of Port-au-Prince and 13.7 miles (22 kilometers) below the surface and is said to be the largest aftershock since the Jan. 12 quake. The quake was too far inland to create a Tsunami, so there was one bright spot in an otherwise dismal and tragic time.
Last week's magnitude-7 quake killed an estimated 200,000 people in Haiti, left 250,000 injured and made 1.5 million homeless.
