🚩 Strong earthquake rocks Puerto Rico, knocks out power island-wide

Quote
...Albert Rodríguez, who is from the southwest town of Guánica, said the tsunami sirens went off before officials canceled the alert. He said there is widespread damage in his neighborhood.

"The road is c r a c k e d in the middle and it lifted up," he said. :o

Agence France Press said people wrote on social media that they were shaken awake by quake's force. One woman tweeted that she'd been "wrenched from sleep" and said, "Everybody is awake & scared all over."

Víctor Huérfano, director of Puerto Rico's Seismic Network, told The Associated Press he doesn't have immediate reports of damage or injuries because communications are down for much of the island. He said officials in the large southern coastal city of Ponce told him there was widespread damage.

My mother-in-law in the San Juan metropolitan area felt it even though the quake was centered almost 50 miles southwest of her location. My brother-in-law and his wife were less than 5 miles from the  epicenter. He told my wife his bed was jerking 3 inches 👀 back and forth during the quake. Needless to say, they didn't sleep a wink after that.
