SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) - A magnitude 4.2 earthquake has hit Puerto Rico at a shallow depth and was felt across the U.S. territory. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake occurred Monday at a depth of 5 kilometers near the southwest coastal town of Guanica.


No damage was reported.

The quake hit during a monthlong curfew to curb the new coronavirus and it came nearly three months after a series of strong quakes near southwest Puerto Rico killed one person and damaged hundreds of homes.
