Today the island of Puerto Rico was shaken by its 11th earthquake of at least a magnitude 5 in the past 30 days, and not long since last month’s punishing 6.4.

According to the US Geological Survey, Tuesday’s earthquake’s center was on the southwest coast, about 13 miles southeast of Guanica.

The magnitude 6.4 earthquake that pounded the island on January 7 caused one fatality, destroyed homes and left two-thirds of the island without power –  and about 300,000 people without water.

Puerto Rico has been battered by the quakes, already hobbled by Category 5 Hurricane Maria that fiercely hit the island in September 2017.
