At least 11 dead as quake topples homes in northern Haiti
At least 11 people have been killed and more than 100 others injured after a 5.9-strong earthquake struck off the northern coast of Haiti late Saturday.
According to the US Geological Survey (USGS), the quake was centred about 20 km west-northwest of the coastal town of Port-de-Paix, at a depth of 11.7 km.
In a post on Twitter, President Jovenel Moise urged people to remain calm following outbreaks of panic in northern towns.
Several buildings have reportedly collapsed in Port-de-Paix, Gros-Morne, the town of Chansolme and the island of Tortuga.
