CNN - Haiti Aftershock

Haiti experienced a 6.1 magnitude earthquake aftershock this morning.

This is very serious.

We know that the population is already in a state of trauma. Now they are experiencing further chaos and trauma. One would suspect that buildings that suffered damage from the first quake yet somehow did not collapse, could collapse with a 6.1 magnitude quake and people would be in those buildings.

The 6.1-magnitude aftershock was about 6.2 miles deep, with an epicenter about 35 miles (60 kilometers) west-southwest of the capital Port-au-Prince, the U.S. Geological Survey said.
