A powerful aftershock struck Haiti Wednesday morning, shaking buildings and sending screaming people running into the streets only eight days after the country's capital was devastated by a major earthquake.

The magnitude-6.1 temblor was the largest aftershock yet to the Jan. 12 quake that shattered Haiti's capital.

It was not immediately clear if it caused additional damage or injuries.

The new quake hit at 5:03 a.m. CST about 35 miles northwest of the capital of Port-au-Prince and 13.7 miles below the surface.
