PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti. - A strong aftershock has hit Haiti, shaking buildings and sending people running into the streets.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the preliminary 6.1 magnitude quake hit at 6:03 a.m. Wednesday about 35 miles northwest of the capital of Port-au-Prince.
The temblor was the largest aftershock since the January 12 quake.
It was not immediately clear if it caused additional injuries or damage to weakened buildings.
The pacific tsunami warning center said the earthquake was located too far inland to generate any tidal waves in the Caribbean.
