11 dead in Haiti earthquake

M5.9 quake shakes northern Haiti

The 5.9-magnitude natural disaster struck off the northwest coast of Haiti late on Saturday.

On Sunday, an aftershock of magnitude 5.2 hit the country, reported AP. The death toll stood at 12, with fears it could rise. A local government representative said 152 people were injured in Port-de-Paix, and the most seriously hurt were taken by air ambulance to the capital Port-au-Prince for treatment.

The Haitian civil protection agency confirmed in a statement posted online that no tsunami warning had been issued in connection with the natural disaster. Local press reports indicate that the situation is particularly serious in Gros Morne, where there are reports of massive damage to buildings and homes.

Among them was Marc-Sena Docteur, a 24-year-old carpenter whose girlfriend died in the quake.

"I'm going to inquire personally of the situation, following the passage of the quake". Emergency teams worked to provide relief in Haiti on Sunday after the quake killed at least 11 people and left dozens injured.

According to the USGS, the epicenter was located about 19 kilometres North-West of the city of port-de-Paix at a depth of 11.7 kilometers, AFP reports.

The Nord-Ouest department is the poorest part of impoverished Haiti, with many isolated areas due to the dire state of the roads.

The 45-year-old American became an MMA promoter earlier in 2018 and posted a tweet about McGregor - and his fans - after the fight.

In 2010, a larger magnitude 7.1 quake damaged much of the capital and killed an estimated 300,000 people. He lost his home in Saturday's quake and is now sleeping under a tarp in someone's yard. "I have to sleep under hard conditions".

President Jovenel Moise urged people to donate blood and asked global aid agencies to coordinate with local agencies to avoid duplicated efforts.

"The quake was felt across all departments of the country, creating a beginning of panic in several cities", said this source. The movement can trigger seismic movement along active fault lines.

The damage from the temblors was visible. Another 30 were injured in Gros-Morne. Others tilted at precarious angles. That quake killed tens of thousands of people.

Prépetit said that if it was a 7 it would have been 40 times robust than what we witnessed yesterday or if it was an 8, 900 times stronger.

The only major damage was a cultural center in Gros Morne that collapsed, Civil Protection said.
