Did anyone just feel a small one this morning a few minutes ago, 8:30 ish?

I can't figure out if it was a prolonged tremor for about a minute or I'm having the shakes. lol

In POP, we did not feel that really small... A bit of water came out of the pool and the kitchen lamp was moving stronger than I have seen...

Didn't feel it but saw the water in the pool as well while having a smoke outside by the pool.

So, not my imagination. I was surprised by how long it lasted.

In Moca this morning.
We felt a little viberation here but
nothing compared to some I experienced in the past.
7 is a strong quake.
No doubt there will be some damage.

Powerful Earthquake Strikes Haiti

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — A magnitude 7 earthquake struck Haiti on Saturday morning, seismologists said, shaking the impoverished Caribbean country that is still recovering from a disastrous quake more than 11 years ago.

The United States Geological Survey said the quake struck five miles from the town of Petit Trou de Nippes in the western part of the country, about 80 miles west of Port-au-Prince. Seismologists said it had a depth of seven miles. It was felt as far away as Jamaica, 200 miles away.

The quake could hardly have come at a worse time for the nation of 11 million, which has been in the throes of a political crisis since President Jovenel Moïse was assassinated on July 7. The U.S.G.S. said it was a magnitude 7 quake. There were no immediate reports of fatalities, but pictures and video posted on social media showed collapsed structures in the aftermath of the quake:

Sloshed the water pretty good here in Sosua too.
Neither I nor my wife felt that 7.2 Haitian earthquake here in Cabarete. We must have been at a null point somehow.
