5.5 Earthquake Hits Puerto Rico.
We are Monitoring the Situation.
A 5.5-magnitude earthquake was recorded off the waters of southern Puerto Rico early Saturday, rattling the city of Ponce. Other earthquakes ranging from 3.4 to 4.9 on the Richter scale have hit the same area. These earthquakes come at a time when Puerto Rico is still recovering from Hurricane Maria in 2017, a swarm of earthquakes in January of 2020 and now COVID-19. Hispanic Federation is monitoring the situation. Staff on the island stand ready to provide relief and recovery services as needed.
