Quake Map of Haiti
More than 20 people were injured around Port-au-Prince when a 3.2 magnitude earthquake shook the Haitian capital and surrounding suburbs on June 24.

The injuries occurred when people fled offices and homes in panic, sometimes jumping from balconies.

A dozen students were injured in their falls from a second floor of a building that had already been damaged by the disastrous 2010 temblor that left about 316,000 people dead and hundreds of thousands of others injured.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the tremor struck about 8 miles south-southwest of Port-au-Prince at a depth of only six miles.

The shaking was felt at 9:06 a.m. local time on Friday.
