Puerto Rico Struck by 5.9-Magnitude Shock

A magnitude 5.9 earthquake struck Puerto Rico on Saturday morning.

Gizmodo reports it was one of three powerful shocks to wrack the island recently following weeks of smaller quakes.

The shake further exacerbated the devastating effects left from Tuesdayโ€™s 6.4 magnitude earthquake.

It was the strongest the areaโ€™s felt in nearly a century.

Saturdayโ€™s quake hit around 9 a.m.

Off the islandโ€™s southern coast, leaving roughly 5,000 customers without power.
