2 Earthquakes Shake, Rattle, Roll Puerto Rico … Latest In Series Of Quakes

SAN JUAN — Two strong earthquakes have shaken Puerto Rico, but there have been no reports of injuries in the latest of a series of tremors that have hit the U.S. commonwealth since late December.

A tremor with a preliminary magnitude of 5.5 hit just southwest of the island in the afternoon on Friday.

It came just a few hours after a magnitude-4.9 shake hit in the same region, causing small landslides and collapsing an abandoned home weakened by the earlier quakes.

Each shake was felt across Puerto Rico, which has experienced a series of earthquakes this year that have damaged or destroyed hundreds of homes.

People in several offices in the capital of San Juan and elsewhere evacuated out of caution.
