to the US Geographical Survey Seismic Unit: / NEIC in Denver, USA and agency GeoForschungsZentrum (GFZ) Potsdam Germany. have confirmed scientifically a major Magnitude 5. earthquake shook the ground in .

earthquake occurred at 19.98 N; 73,03 W and with a depth of 10 km, a distance 175 km northwest of Port-au-Prince, .

Enriquillo-Plantain-Garden Seismic Fault

Obviously preliminary seems the fault of Enriquillo-Plantain-Garden that has begun to move again, shyly remember that this fault particularly the countries sharing the island of Hispaniola.

runs diagonally south- of the island to the north- of vast territory covered the republics and Dominicana.

to some data that we have in hand this recent earthquake in Haiti is no other than the -up of a series of earthquakes that a consequent had hit the of magnitude 5.2 to 3 km northwest of Villa Elisa, September 23, at 05:45:50 (UTC) at 19.708 ° N 71.291 ° W14.0 km depth and affected the regions of Villa Elisa, Monte Cristi, Villa Vásquez, Las Matas , Sabaneta, Mao, Valverde, which had caused of material damage.
