A magnitude-6.5 earthquake struck just offshore south of Puerto Rico early Jan 7. The quake’s epicenter was about 10 km (6 miles) south of Indios, Puerto Rico, at a depth of 7 km (4 miles). This event follows a magnitude-5.8 quake that occurred just off the coast of southwest Puerto Rico, Jan. 6, which resulted in some structural damage near its epicenter, as well as widespread power outages. The event has not prompted any tsunami warnings; however, officials have stated that although there is a very small possibility of waves along the coast nearest the epicenter, no action is required. As of Jan. 7, nationwide power outages are in place due to damages to one of the island’s main power plants. Officials are expecting to have power restored to much of the island later Jan. 7; however, the exact time is unknown. Media reports also suggest that series of earthquakes resulted in the collapse of Punta Ventana, which is a popular tourist rock formation in Puerto Rico. There are currently no reports available confirming any flight disruption to airports servicing Puerto Rico.
