A magnitude 5.9 earthquake struck on Saturday close to the northermost tip of Haiti, some 12.3 miles (19.9 kilometers), west-northwest of the port of Port-de-Paix, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said.

The quake damaged the facade of a church in Plaisance and a house next door collapsed, Frantz Duval, a journalist with the Haitian newspaper Le Nouvelliste, said on Twitter.
