After an 6.1 magnitude aftershock to the devastating earthquake hit Haiti this morning even more damage has been done to the fragile country.

Just eight days after the earthquake, an aftershock struck the small Caribbean island 35 miles outside of its capital, Port-au-Prince. According to the Associated Press, over 1.5 million people have been displaced since the quake and become homeless. The aftershock sent those living in tents and sleeping on the streets scrambling to safety after damaged buildings began to crumble.
