What you're seeing is the disruption from the mountains. 7,000' mountains prevent the rotary nature of the winds from continuing around; the circulation is forced upwards and rains out; the "back side" then carries less precipitation.
As the core moves away from Haiti this effect will diminish; the circulation is still there and the convection is starting to wrap back around.
