UPDATE: Magnitude 5.9 earthquake strikes Haiti

A magnitude 5.9 earthquake destroyed homes and damaged a church and at least one hospital in Haiti, where officials reported at least 11 people have died and 130 people were injured. 

The U.S. Geologic Survey said the quake that hit at 8:11 p.m. Saturday (001 GMT) was centred 12 miles (19 kilometres) northwest of Port-de-Paix on Haiti's north coast. It was 7.3 miles (11.7 kilometres) below the surface. 

The country's civil protection agency issued a statement saying several people were injured and some houses destroyed in Port-de-Paix, Gros Morne, Chansolme and Turtle Island. Among the structures damaged was the Saint-Michel church in Plaisance.

Other rescue workers reported the collapse of part of a hospital and an auditorium as the quake hit on a rainy evening.

The quake was felt lightly in the capital, Port-au-Prince, as well as in the neighbouring Dominican Republic.
