Well im surprised no one has said anything yet...
It was a little farther from the capital than last week's magnitude-7.0 quake, which killed an estimated 200,000 people and made as many as 2 million homeless, according to the European Union.

Wednesday's temblor matched the strongest of 49 aftershocks of magnitude-4.5 or greater that have followed the Jan. 12 quake and USGS geophysicist Bruce Pressgrave said nobody knows if a still-stronger aftershock is possible.

"Aftershocks sometimes die out very quickly," he said. "In other cases they can go on for weeks, or if we're really unlucky it could go on for months" as the earth adjusts to the new stresses caused by the initial quake.

The shaking ripped 8-inch cracks in a road west of the capital near Leogane, where U.S. Marines were setting up a post to aid quake victims who are sleeping in streets, culverts and driveways, often under tree branches draped with sheets to guard against the sun.

Yeah, tragic results in Haiti. That is what you get when you add up the excessive population, poorly constructed building and 400 years with no earthquakes.

On the bright side there is lots of help coming for Haiti :)

It is pretty sad, even a game I have called ROBLOX has a hat to donate to Haiti: http://www.roblox.com/Item.aspx?ID=20721202
If you look at the comments, they're spam though and ROBLOX doesn't have good mods to look around the place. I'm actualy not a mod there, they won't even let you ask to be one.
