Puerto Rico – Temporary Seismic Stations


I’m out here at one of the temporary sites
that USGS and the Puerto Rico seismic network have installed in southwestern Puerto Rico
to continue monitoring the sequence that began on Dec 28th, 2019. These stations — the stations here as well
as five others from the USGS and three other temporary sites from the Puerto Rico seismic
network — will help us both locate earthquakes, determine magnitude, as well as look at things
like ground shaking to help secure against future earthquakes and the hazards in the
region.
