A strong earthquake has hit Haiti, shaking buildings and sending people running into the streets.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the preliminary 6.0 magnitude quake hit at 6:03 a.m. EST Wednesday about 35 miles northwest of the capital of Port-au-Prince.

AP reporters in the Haitian capital say the tremor sent scores of people fleeing into the streets.

The pacific tsunami warning center said the earthquake was located too far inland to generate any tidal waves in the Caribbean.

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