Early morning 5.8-magnitude earthquake jolts Puerto Rico; no injuries reported
The U.S. Geological Survey pinpointed the temblor 8 miles south-southeast of Indios, Puerto Rico, in the Caribbean Sea, at a depth of 3.7 miles. It struck at 6:32 a.m. local time.
There was no tsunami threat associated with the quake, the USGS said. There were, however, several lesser aftershocks.
Puerto Rico Director of Emergency Management Carlos Acevedo told CNN no one suffered any major injuries in the quake. Some homes, however, sustained damaged in Guanica and another collapsed in Guayanilla. Electricity was knocked out in isolated areas. In a pair of tweets, Gov. Wanda Vázquez Garced said she was in "direct communication" with mayors of Guayanilla and Guánica, as well as other officials.
"Citizens must remain calm and have their action plans prepared to protect themselves," she tweeted.
Puerto Rico has experienced a flurry of seismic activity since Dec. 28, with Monday's quake being the strongest yet.
