Haiti earthquake kills one, pushes residents into the streets




PORT-AU-PRINCE (Reuters) – A 5.3-magnitude earthquake and a series of small earthquakes rocked Haiti on Monday, killing one person and sending panicked residents of the southern Caribbean peninsula into the streets.

The US Geological Survey reported that the first earthquake hit an area near the city of Les Caye and was followed by 4.4 and 5.1 tremors in the same area, just six months after a major earthquake in the same area killed more than 2,000 people.

One person has been killed and many injured in Fond de Niger, Nipp County, according to a civil protection report sent to Reuters and later confirmed by Civil Protection Chief Jerry Chandler. The report stated that many homes were damaged.

Chandler had previously said that no major damage had been reported.

Jean-Robert Leger, a resident of the southern peninsula town of Bestel, said the impact appears to be minimal.

“In Pestel, there’s not much damage,” he said by phone. “We see that the houses near the sea that were already damaged have collapsed even more.”

Children ran out of school buildings in Les Caye and “people were terrified” although there was no damage, according to one resident.

In August, a 7.2-magnitude earthquake destroyed tens of thousands of homes, left families sleeping outside in torrential rain and forced Prime Minister Ariel Henry to suspend elections scheduled for November.

Haiti is still recovering from the 2010 earthquake that killed more than 200,000 people.
