A strong earthquake has hit Haiti, shaking buildings and sending people running into the streets. The U.S. Geological Survey says the preliminary 6.0 magnitude quake hit at 6:03 a.m. (1103 GMT) Wednesday about 35 miles (56 kilometers) northwest of the capital of Port-au-Prince.
It says the quake struck at a depth of 13.7 miles (22 kilometers). AP reporters in the Haitian capital say the temblor sent scores of people fleeing into the streets.
The pacific tsunami warning center said the earthquake was located too far inland to generate any tidal waves in the Caribbean.

Haiti is in total destruction from the initial quake. Now they are hit again? I didn't catch all the news of this yet but I thought I heard that it was an after shock? That's a pretty big after shock! I'm just glad they brought some of the orphans out of there before this hit. The ones that were adopted prior to the intial quake were sent to Childrens Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pa and I heard they are doing fine.
