Yesterday Wednesday, November 13, 2019 at 12:25 and 9 seconds, an earthquake with an intensity of 3.0 on the Richter scale was recorded near Marigot (Southeast).

The epicenter was located at 18.245 latitude and -72.002 longitude, at a depth of 14.6 kilometers, 34 km east of Marigot, 7.3 km northeast of Belle Anse, 56.3 km east of Jacmel and 45.3 km southeast of Port-au-Prince.

This is the second earthquake to occur this week near Marigot in less than 72 hours after that of Monday 11 with an intensity of 3.2 on the Richter scale https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-29241-haiti-flash-earthquake-in-the-southeast.html

Recall that Haiti is located in the middle of a vast system of geological faults resulting from the movement of the tectonic plates of the Caribbean and North America, which explains the frequent earthquakes in the country.
