Breaking News: Another Big Earthquake Hits Haiti
Earthquakes seem to be all the rage in Haiti this month.
Little over a week ago, a 7.0 earthquake killed 200,000, wounded at least 250,000, and left 1.5 million without homes. Now, after more than 40 aftershocks, another quake attacks the small island—and this time it’s a 6.1. The previous earthquake wreaked most of its havoc throughout Port-au-Prince. This latest one, which occurred in the early dawn hours of today, was centered approximately 35 miles (60 km) northwest of the city.
The extent of damage, death or injuries from today’s earthquake is still unknown.
