Event

Minor infrastructural damages have been reported in Puerto Rico after the US Geological Survey (USGS) recorded a 5.5-magnitude earthquake 6 km (4 mi) south of Tallaboa at approximately 07:13 (local time) on Saturday, May 2. According to the spokeswoman Inés Rivera for the city of Ponce, no major infrastructure damage or casualties have been reported so far. Although the quake prompted power outages, cracks on buildings, and small landslides, while in Ponce, a balcony reportedly collapsed.

Further aftershocks are likely to continue over the coming hours and days.

Advice

Individuals in the affected areas are advised to monitor the situation and prepare for potential aftershocks.

In the event of aftershocks, individuals are advised to protect themselves as much as possible from falling debris if indoors (e.g. under a table), move away from windows, and not attempt to leave a building unless there is immediate danger. If outdoors, move away from tall buildings, utility wires, and streetlights.
