Strong 6.1 aftershock rocks Haiti
On Wednesday morning, at 6:03:44 local time, a 6.1 earthquake struck Haiti, about 35 miles WSW of Port-au-Prince (USGS). Chunks of concrete fell in Canopevert, briefly burying a man who was promptly rescued [Miami Herald].
“U.S. soldiers and tent city refugees alike raced for open ground, and clouds of dust rose in the capital,” reported AP.
Almost immediately, Twitter went offline for about half an hour. The relationship between the Twitter outage and the tremor is not yet clear.
