6.5 magnitude earthquake strikes north of Puerto Rico on heels of 4 year anniversary of deadly Haiti quake

Puerto Rico Jan 12
January 13, 2014PUERTO RICOA strong quake of magnitude 6.5 struck north off Puerto Rico on Monday and could trigger a local tsunami, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said. It said the quake, initially reported as a magnitude 6.4, was very shallow, at a depth of 17.7 miles below the seabed. It struck at 12:01 a.m. (0401 GMT), 35 miles north of the town of Hatillo. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said the quake could trigger a local tsunami. “There is the small possibility of a local tsunami that could affect coasts located usually no more than a hundred kilometers (63 miles) from the earthquake epicenter,” the tsunami center said in its advisory. There were no immediate reports of damage. Sunday marked the fourth anniversary of the devastating 7.0 magnitude earthquake in nearby Haiti that killed more than 200,000 people and left 1.5 million homeless. –Reuters

    with a saturated ground in the eastern and southern US, a New Madrid Quake of 7 or higher would be very devistating right about now… It would also usher in mashall law without a doubt…
