"I felt it" reports:
Ponce / MMI III (Weak shaking): Why is it that in: has over 570 quakes in the last seven day?
Ponce / MMI IV (Light shaking): Puerto Rico has offshore oil & gas, USGS says... Maybe thats why the Earthquake Frequency, Increases intensity lately over in Puerto Rico. The Earthquakes normaly hits over the northern part of the island, but the epicenter since the 1st of January its very strange at the southern part with over 500 Earthquakes & still going. Could this be were the oil & gas that Trump was taking about?
