So far, no significant damage has been reported. However, the Department of Civil Protection (DPC) has not yet submitted its balance sheet.
Let's recall that on September 25, an earthquake of 4.6 on the Richter scale was felt in the southern municipalities of Port Salut and Les Cayes https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-28846-haiti-flash-earthquake-in-the-south-of-les-cayes.html , while on July 30, a magnitude 3.3 earthquake was recorded 2 kilometers from Bainet https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-28372-haiti-flash-second-earthquake-in-haiti.html located in the province of the southeast, also without reported damage and a dozen times in the night from August 13 to 14 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-28498-haiti-flash-at-least-10-earthquake-in-less-than-24-hours.html
Haiti is in the midst of a vast system of geological faults resulting from the movement of the tectonic plates of the Caribbean and North America, this is why Haiti is subject to frequent earthquakes.
