5.2-magnitude aftershock rattles northern Haiti

President of Haiti Jovenel Moise addresses the United Nations General Assembly in New York

The quake's epicenter was about 20 kilometers (12 miles) west-northwest of the coastal town of Port-de-Paix at a depth of 11.7 kilometers, according to the US Geological Survey.

Haiti's civil protection agency issued a statement saying that houses were destroyed in cities of Port-de-Paix, Gros-Morne, Chansolme and Turtle Island by Saturday's temblor.

The USGS said Saturday's quake was centered 12 miles (19 kilometers) northwest of Port-de-Paix, which is about 136 miles (219 kilometers) from the capital of Port-au-Prince. It was 7.3 miles (11.7 kilometers) below the surface.

"I congratulate the citizens for their show of solidarity and support", Moise said in a Twitter message, vowing to ensure that the government was doing everything possible to help victims.

Haiti, the Western Hemisphere's poorest country, has never fully recovered from the 7.1-magnitude quake in 2010 that killed more than 200,000 people and left about one million people homeless.

Le Nouvelliste newspaper said one person died when an auditorium collapsed in Gros Morne, and that detainees were released from a police holding cell that was damaged.

The Nord-Ouest department is the poorest part of impoverished Haiti, with many isolated areas due to the dire state of the roads.

The building's guard, who was sleeping at the time of the quake, was killed.

In January 2010, a 7.1 magnitude natural disaster killed an estimated 220,000 to 300,000 people in Haiti.

A total of at least 12 people were killed in the quake, Interior Minister Fednel Monchery told radio station MAGK9. Tens of thousands of people are still displaced because of the quake.
