According the US Geographical Survey Seismic Unit: / NEIC in Denver, and German agency GeoForschungsZentrum (GFZ) Potsdam Germany. Both agencies have confirmed scientifically that this major Magnitude 5.9 earthquake that shook the in Haiti.

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

Enriquillo-Plantain-Garden Seismic Fault

Obviously preliminary it seems that it the famous fault of Enriquillo-Plantain-Garden that begun move again, shyly remember that this fault is particularly dangerous for the countries the of Hispaniola.

It runs diagonally - of the the north-west of vast territory covered the republics Haiti and Dominicana.
