This isn’t directly volcano-related, but the USGS (and CNN) are reporting that a 7.0 earthquake just occurred in Haiti.

The earthquake was at 10 km depth – so a fairly shallow earthquake related to the complex transform faulting along the boundary of the Caribbean and Atlantic plates. A Tsunani Watch has been issued for the Caribbean as well – but the US Pacific Tsunami Warning Center believes that the only effects will be local (within 100 km) of Hispaniola.
