Puerto Rico Earthquakes

Jan 17, 2020

Puerto Rico has been rocked by a series of severe earthquakes and powerful aftershocks, leaving many without power, causing landslides in towns along the southern coast and extensive property damage. The quakes have brought renewed attention to the island’s ongoing rebuilding efforts following Hurricane Maria more than two years ago.
