article imageAnother 4.4 magnitude earthquake strikes the Haiti region

By Andrew Moran     Jan 26, 2010 in World
Two weeks ago, Haiti was devastated by a 7.0 magnitude earthquake, which killed approximately 150,000 people. On Tuesday, a 4.4 magnitude earthquake hit the Haiti region again.
On Tuesday morning, a 4.4 magnitude earthquake shook the Caribbean nation of Haiti after an aftershock took place one hour prior, according to the Straits Times. There have been no reports of injuries, deaths or damages caused by Tuesday’s quake.
According to the United States Geological Survey, the quake had a depth measuring at 6.2 miles and was located 55 miles west of Port-Au-Prince. The USGS is also warning of strong aftershocks for the next 30 days and a possibility of one or more strong earthquakes measuring more than 6.0 hitting the country.
AFP noted that Haitian resident Edison Constant said the aftershocks struck in a series around dawn, “We just can't get used to these quakes. Each aftershock is terrifying and everyone is afraid.”
The latest Haiti earthquake comes the same day as another two earthquakes struck Indonesia.
