Houses and churches were reduced to rubble as a major earthquake - bigger than the 2010 tremor that killed an estimated 300,000 - hit just west of Port-au-Prince, haiti.

Many people are feared dead in Haiti after a major 7.2 magnitude earthquake caused homes to collapse as it shook buildings across the Caribbean.

Haiti is still recovering from the smaller but devastating earthquake of 2010, which was estimated to have killed more than 300,000 people.

The general hospital in Les Cayes was "overwhelmed" with "lots of injured" people after "many" houses and a hotel collapsed, Haiti Libre reported.

In many places, terrified residents ran out of their homes, fearing they would collapse on top of them.

An aftershock measuring 6.6 occurred about 20 minutes later as people checked collapsed buildings and surveyed the damage in the streets.

The earthquake in Haiti occurred about 30 minutes after a 6.9 magnitude tremor hit off the coast of Alaska. »
