5.4 Earthquake, Central PR, Dec. 24th, 7:43PM

    Being no stranger to earthquakes..

    I was somewhat amused by the tremor we experienced yesterday. About the time I decided we should probably go outside, it started to wind down. Though it lasted for most of 5 minutes, I could only feel about a minute of it.

    Many folks have reported that this was the strongest earthquake they had ever experienced, but with only minor damage.

    The quake was centered near Aguas Buenas, south of San Juan.

    Thankfully, Puerto Rico has it’s own earthquake system run by the Puerto Rico Seismic Network (PRSN) and is part of the Department of Geology of the University of Puerto Rico in Mayagüez. Last night, their poor little Web site went down from all the heavy traffic, immediately after the tremor. It was back up in less than 20 minutes, which is to their credit.

    Here is a link to a short interview, shot after the fact at the San Juan airport (in Spanish). This is not a YouTube vid so my link is to the page it resides on, at elnuevodia.
