(AP) ó A small earthquake shook Haiti's capital on Monday, causing people in the capital to scramble out of buildings in fear.
US Geological Survey seismologist Susan Hoover said the quake had a magnitude of 3.5.
The tremor struck at 7.39 p.m
The epicenter was 17 miles or 27 kilometers northeast of Port-au-Prince and was relatively shallow at 6 miles deep.
The tremor caused panic among some residents of Port-au-Prince, who remembered the 7.0-magnitude monster that struck the southern part of the country in 2010 and killed thousands of people.
A government official said there were no immediate reports of damage.
