Haiti was struck by another heavy 5.9 aftershock on Wednesday, further putting the already devastated country in ruins.
The latest quake was centered about 35 miles west-southwest of the Haitian capital Port-au-Prince.
Moments after the latest quake people were reportedly fleeing to the streets and jumping from buildings in sheer panic. Other people in the capital had already been sleeping in the streets out of fear of being hit by collapsing buildings.
"It kind of felt like standing on a board on top of a ball," said Steven Payne, a U.S. Army Staff Sgt. describing the aftershock, reported AP.
The extent of the damage and the number of victims from the latest quake is still unknown. The death toll from the initial Jan. 12 earthquake has been estimated at 200,000 to 250,000, with about 1.5 million people left homeless.
