GUAYANILLA, PUERTO RICO (KYMA, KECY) - Quake-battered Puerto Rico was hit again by a 5.0 magnitude earthquake Saturday.
The earthquake hit southern Puerto Rico, near the town of Guayanilla.
The U.S. Geological Survey says it occurred at a shallow depth, near the epicenters of most of the recent quakes this month.
This latest quake comes a day after hundreds of Puerto Ricans were evacuated from outdoor shelters that flooded due to heavy rain, reports NBC.
Puerto Rico has been reeling from earthquakes and aftershocks, especially since a 6.4 quake struck on January 7.
Since then the island has experienced earthquakes every day for nearly a month.
