Tsunami warning issued after powerful quake hits Haiti

A 7.3-magnitude earthquake struck Haiti on Saturday, with a depth of 10 kilometers, monitored by the China Earthquake Networks Center.

A tsunami warning was issued after the quake.

Officials from Haiti’s national civil defense department said the quake caused casualties, but the exact figures was not yet confirmed.
