UPDATE: Shocks felt in Haiti called aftershock


HAITI (CNN)  -- A 6.1-magnitude aftershock rocked Haiti early Wednesday morning as medical aid was set to reach the earthquake ravaged country.

The U.S. Geological Survey reports say the shock hit about 35 miles northwest of the Haitian capitol of Port-au-Prince around 6:03 AM Haitian time.

It says the quake struck at a depth of 13.7 miles.

Associated Press reporters in the Haitian capital say the temblor sent scores of people fleeing into the streets.

The pacific tsunami warning center said the earthquake was located too far inland to generate any tidal waves in the Caribbean.

The aftershock comes just a week after a 7.0 earthquake ravaged the country.  Reports show 200,000 people are dead because of that quake.

Newsline 9 will continue to update this story as more information is made available.
