Puerto Rico earthquake: 5.5 magnitude quake rocks Caribbean

Puerto Rico isn’t the only country to feel the sting of an earthquake today, as Greece was also hit by a significant tremor. 

The USGS reported a 6.6 magnitude earthquake near Ierapetra at 12.51pm, which rumbled in the sea to the south of the Cretan town. 

Currently, the earthquake monitors suggest people on the island will not feel its effects, and there is a low chance of death or significant economic damage. 

The USGS released a green pager warning for both estimates, with a maximum 65 percent chance one person would die, and damages could stray into the $1 million (£750,000) band.
