New Haiti Quake Reported

A magnitude 6.1 aftershock struck Haiti today, Jan. 20, west of last week’s magnitude 7.0 earthquake. Although the extent of the damage from this seismic activity is not yet known, it is expected that it will hinder ongoing relief efforts. A map showing the location of the new quake epicenter has been prepared by the SERVIR network and shared with national authorities as well as regional and international humanitarian assistance groups. SERVIR, which stands for the Regional Visualization & Monitoring System for Mesoamerica and the Dominican Republic, is supported by NASA and the U.S. Agency for International Development.

Updates on the Haiti earthquake from SERVIR are available online at:
