Haiti - FLASH : Earthquake in Cap Haitien
On Monday, at 9:26 am, an earthquake with an intensity of 3.5 on the Richter scale occurred in Cap Haitien, the second largest city in the country.

The epicenter of the earthquake was located at 19.736 latitude, and -71.895 longitude, at a depth of 34 kilometers, 14km at sea northeast of Caracol, and 33km east of Cap-Haitien and 145km at Northeast of Port-au-Prince.

So far, no significant damage has been reported. However, the Department of Civil Protection (DPC) has not yet submitted its balance sheet.

Let's recall that on September 25, an earthquake of 4.6 on the Richter scale was felt in the southern municipalities of Port Salut and Les Cayes https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-28846-haiti-flash-earthquake-in-the-south-of-les-cayes.html , while on July 30, a magnitude 3.3 earthquake was recorded 2 kilometers from Bainet https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-28372-haiti-flash-second-earthquake-in-haiti.html located in the province of the southeast, also without reported damage and a dozen times in the night from August 13 to 14 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-28498-haiti-flash-at-least-10-earthquake-in-less-than-24-hours.html

Haiti is in the midst of a vast system of geological faults resulting from the movement of the tectonic plates of the Caribbean and North America, this is why Haiti is subject to frequent earthquakes.
