Earthquake in Haiti capital panics residents
A small earthquake shook Haiti's capital on Monday, causing people in the capital to scramble out of buildings in fear.
U.S. Geological Survey seismologist Susan Hoover said the quake had a magnitude of 3.5. The epicenter was 27 kilometres northeast of Port-au-Prince and was relatively shallow at 10 kilometres deep.
The tremor caused panic among some residents of Port-au-Prince who remembered the 7.0-magnitude monster that struck the southern part of the country in 2010 and killed thousands of people.
A government official said there were no immediate reports of damage.
The tremor struck at 7:39 p.m. ET.
