Yesterday morning, a 5.8-magnitude earthquake rocked the western coast of Puerto Rico, causing immediate panic for locals and tourists. Luckily for Puerto Rico, this event was not anywhere near as deadly and destructive as the 7.0 earthquake that decimated areas of Haiti in January.
For travelers heading to Puerto Rico, no flights have been cancelled and there have no reports of injuries or structural damage to hotels and resorts in Aguadilla, Anasco, San Sebastian and Mayaguez, all cities close to the epicenter in Moca. They have actually been very lucky with this, although geologists warn that this earthquake is only a warning for a much larger one to follow. But they always say that; California is way overdue to sink into the ocean as it is. Just check out this world map of earthquakes within the last weekthey're happening constantly!
