6.4 Magnitude Earthquake
Hits Puerto Rico.
The quake struck the U.S. territory
at 4:24 a.m.
Local time Tuesday,
killing one and causing an
island-wide power outage.
The earthquake is the largest in a series
of recent quakes affecting the island.
We expect that this will be
the largest quake for now.
The aftershocks will continue
for some time.

A 5.8 magnitude quake that hit the coast early
Monday morning collapsed and damaged
several homes and historic sites.
