Where was the Haiti earthquake?

The Haiti earthquake was, strangely enough, in a country called Haiti.

Haiti is within the North Atlantic Ocean. It occupies the western third of the island called Hispaniola, between the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, and west of the Dominican Republic.

The epicentre was at 18° 27′ 25.2″ N, 72° 31′ 58.8″ W, which is near Léogâne, some 25km west of the capital of Port-au-Prince. The most affected areas included Port-au-Prince, Jacmel and nearby settlements.
