Haiti – Earthquake: An earthquake of 5.9 magnitudes hit the country whose shocks were felt by the living in several departments, cities, localities main counties in the country.

Immediately after the earthquake, some aftershocks were also observed in several Departments regions the West particularly at Port-au-Prince its areas, in the Northwest especially the city of Port-de-Paix and localities, after the major earthquake of 5.9 Magnitudes

situation caused a wave of panic among the population, which is still suffering the aftermath of a prior major disaster caused by another devastating earthquake January 12, 2010, which caused more than 300,000 deaths 2 million people homeless.

According to the Geographical Survey Seismic Unit: USGS / NEIC in Denver, USA another German agency called GeoForschungsZentrum (GFZ) Potsdam Germany. Both agencies have confirmed scientifically that is a major Magnitude 5.9 earthquake shook the ground in Haiti.

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

Enriquillo-Plantain-Garden Seismic Fault

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

It runs diagonally south-east of the island to the north-west of vast territory covered the republics Haiti Dominicana.

According to some data we have in hand recent earthquake in Haiti is no other than the follow-up of a series of earthquakes a consequent had hit the Dominican Republic of magnitude 5.2 to 3 km northwest of Elisa, Dominican Republic September 23, 2018 at 05:45:50 (UTC) at 19.708 ° N 71.291 ° W14.0 km depth affected the regions of Elisa, Monte Cristi, Vásquez, Las Matas de Santa Cruz, Sabaneta, Mao, Valverde, which had caused a lot of material damage.

We would like to point out the Republic of Haiti the Dominican Republic have felt: 3 earthquakes over the last 24 over 2.0 magnitudes 13 earthquakes in the last 7 days. 

For these countries, the earth is shaking often almost more than once a day including 52 earthquakes in the last 30 days 452 earthquakes in the last 365 days with the most powerful we observed in the Dominican Republic last week at 5.2 magnitudes, then another in Port-de-Paix, Northwest, Haiti week at 5.9 in Port-de-Paix.

We emphasize all the north center of Haiti particularly the regions of Artibonite, Center, North, Northeast, Northwest are constant threat of the strong earthquake possibilities to come if those plate tectonics continues to move.

Definitively Haitians must consider high-risk earthquake territory the government should launch some preventional programs to educate the population to be ready for all eventualities the worst case scenario since there about 4.5 million people living the path of devastating Enriquillo Seismic Fault for only the Haitian part of the island.
