The Guardian UK, 7 Oct 2018.


An earthquake has struck off the northern coast of Haiti, killing at least 11 and injuring more than 135 people, when several buildings collapsed in the impoverished Caribbean country, officials said.


The magnitude 5.9 quake was centered about 12 miles west-northwest of the coastal town of Port-de-Paix, at a depth of 7.3 miles, the U.S. Geological Survey said.
The tremors from the quake, which struck at 8.10pm local time (1am GMT), could be felt, across the country, as well as in the neighboring Dominican Republic and eastern Cuba.

An earthquake that struck off the northern coast of Haiti late on Saturday killed at least 11 people and injured more than a hundred when several buildings collapsed in the impoverished Caribbean country, officials said

.

The police chief for the northwest region, Jackson Hilaire, said at least seven people were killed and more than 100 injured in Port-de-Paix.

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

The tremor was one of the strongest to hit Haiti since a 7.0 magnitude quake struck near the capital, Port-au-Prince, in 2010, killing tens of thousands of people.


The civil protection agency issued a statement saying that some houses were destroyed in Port-de-Paix, Gros Morne, Chansolme and Turtle Island.
Among the structures damaged was the Saint-Michel church in Plaisance.

Haiti's Prime Minister called on his citizens to be cautious and calm

Rescue workers reported the collapse of part of a hospital in Gros-Morne and an auditorium as the quake hit on a rainy evening.
They also reported damage at the police station in Port-de-Paix.

In a post on Twitter, President Jovenel Moise urged people to remain calm after the civil protection agency reported the latest quake had caused outbreaks of panic in northern towns.

Le Nouvelliste newspaper said one person was killed when an auditorium collapsed in Gros-Morne and that detainees were released from a police holding cell that was damaged.

Impoverished Haiti, where many live in tenuous circumstances, is especially vulnerable to earthquakes.
