Areas close to the epicenter most likely experienced medium to moderate shaking, while light shaking was probably felt throughout much of the rest of Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

Significant damage is unlikely given that there have been no initial reports of earthquake-related damage or casualties. Before officials can perform thorough damage assessments, especially in isolated places, it can take many hours. There may be aftershocks in the upcoming days.
To assess potential damage, officials temporarily closed the seismic zone’s transportation network. During shutdowns, there may be some minor inconveniences, but if no damage is discovered, service will probably resume soon. Utility disruptions could occur, especially in the vicinity of the epicenter of the earthquake.
