Latest seismic update: the fault is still restless, delivering intermittent, small quakes.
I am sure every tension point is slightly different from the next, however, in your opinion how long can "foreshocks" last?
Yeah, I tried in GEE 2.2.0 to open up several networks including CU and they would not load. Sorry, I have no idea why. the developers haven't updated it in over a year. Sorry.

If memory serves me correctly ... The only tidal wave to hit the U.S. Hit the Florida Keys... But that was from a hurricane . Of course tsunami and tidal wave are different ... But... just saying ....Cuba is only 90 miles away . It's too
Close to be able to get out of any thing happened ...The big joke in the lower keys is " we are closer to Cuba then ANY Walmart".

I suspected as much, but does it make the earthquakes they trigger any less likely to trigger something bigger?
Here, we investigate the impact of three possible earthquake scenarios, consistent with the regional seismotectonic setting, on northern Haiti through inundation by tsunami waves. These scenarios simulate the effect of a M8.0 earthquake on the Septentrional strike-slip fault (possibly similar to the 1842 earthquake), a M8.1 earthquake on the offshore thrust fault system north of Haiti, and an earthquake rupturing a large portion of the offshore thrust fault system north of Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
