A 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck Puerto Rico on Tuesday, January 7, 2020. The previous day a magnitude 5.8 earthquake struck. Residents of south and southwest coasts in the municipalities of Ponce, Peñuelas, Guayanilla, Yauco and Guánica, damaged and destroyed hundreds of homes, school, businesses, and property as they experienced at least 51 aftershocks, the largest at magnitude 5.9 occurring Saturday morning, January 11. That one, the biggest quake to hit Puerto Rico in a century, killed at least one person, damaged nearly 600 buildings and caused at least $110 million in damage, Reuters reported.
Thousands of residents in Puerto Rico slept in their yards after a powerful earthquake caused serious damage to one of the island’s major power plants.
Persistent earthquakes put Puerto Rico on edge.
These are difficult times in Puerto Rico. Since December 28, the Caribbean island has been struck by more than 500 earthquakes with a magnitude of 2 or greater.
