Puerto Rico is an island that is used to be hit by other natural disasters like hurricanes but this kind on phenomena are not something people keep memories about.
An earthquake of 6.4 (Mw) occurred on January 7, 2020. The epicenter was located at Yauco, a city located at the south of the island. This is the 3rd biggest earthquake in Puerto Rico since there are records about it.
Houses, schools, church and roads were affected. People preferred to stay outside their houses in fear of a collapse for the continuous tremors.
I met a family who partially move outside their home and spend the all day at the porch. They preferred to stay outside than inside due to the constant aftershocks and the fear of the collapse of the house.
