What's happening in Puerto Rico/Que esta pasando en Puerto Rico




Hi Beauties:

Today I come to talk you about my beautiful island. About my Puerto Rico and what is happening.
On December 28, 2019 The seismic network of Puerto Rico recorded a earthquake of 4.7 magnitude  through the south west area specifically in Guánica. From that day the replicas continued as it is natural to happen. Then on January 6 a stronger happened, a 5.8 magnitude in the same region destroying several houses and saddening several children as they lost their homes on Kings Day. But on January  7 the strongest one felt  in the Montalva region. It was an underwater quake of 6.6 magnitude and it left the entire island without electricity and with much destruction and devastation in the southwest area near where the epicenter is.

Many people lost their homes and belongings. A woman lost her leg and a man lost his life. The rest of the island felt this tremor but being far from the epicenter has been able to recover sooner but the southern area has many people affected. Many schools were destroyed, many houses collapsed and many people have their houses compromised since they have large cracks. The Teutonic layers have not stopped moving and this causes many structures to continue cracking and even collapses have occurred after this first earthquake.

And so, for you to have a clear idea of ​​why this is happening, Puerto Rico is located not only in an hurricane area  but also in a earthquakes area. The island of Puerto Rico is located in the middle of the Caribbean Tectonic Plate located in the South and the North American Tectonic Plate located in the North. These. Tectonic Plates move in the opposite direction to each other and this causes that with the slightest release of energy, the island trembles daily. In addition, Puerto Rico is between two trenches: The Trench of the Dead located to the South and the Trench of Puerto Rico. And this Trench is the second most dangerous in the world, where the deepest point of the Atlantic Ocean is located and it is 9,200 meters below sea level. Puerto Rico has 504 faults among which are the Guayanilla Canyon where the epicenter of the recent tremors is found, Mona Canyon, Mona Passage, Hat Seismic Zone, Northern Fault Zone, Virgin Islands Depression, Virgin Islands Platform, Eastern Zone of the Dominican Republic, Central Region of Puerto Rico and the 19 ° N Fault Zone. And all these faults are in continuous activity.

In addition to all this we have problems with the mental health of the victims who live in the epicenter area since they have anxiety, depression and panic attacks because they are not accustomed to the constant tremors which can be 28 daily. To this is added that in these days a warehouse was discovered with supplies from the time of Hurricane Maria which were expired. This aroused the indignation of the people and they are protesting the misuse of money and the lack of consideration towards the less valid.

Even so, the people have risen to help, many people have gone to the affected towns. Taking out of their time and money. Businesses, Churches, Celebrities and non-profit organizations have put their seed so that the south can recover. And you can do the same. Here is a list of some organizations that are helping with the recovery of the island:

Salvation Army
       
Brigada Solidaria del Oeste

The Happy Givers

PRxPR – RELIEF & REBUILD FUND

World Central Kitchen

Hispanic Federation Unidos Program

Hola Bellezas:

Hoy les vengo a hablar de mi isla hermosa. De mi Puerto Rico y que es lo que esta pasando.El 28 de diciembre del 2019 La red sísmica de Puerto Rico registro un temblor de magnitud 4.7 por el área sur oeste especificamente el Pueblo de Guánica. De ese día en adelante se siguieron sintiendo replicas como es natural que pase. Luego el 6 de enero se sintió uno mas fuerte de 5.8 en la misma región destruyendo varias casas y entristeciendo a varios niños ya que perdieron sus hogares el día de Reyes. Pero el 7 de enero se sintió el mas fuerte de en la región Montalva. El mismo fue sismo submarino de magnitud 6.6 y dejo a toda la isla sin energía eléctrica y con mucha destrucción y devastación en el suroeste cerca de donde esta el epicentro.

Muchas personas perdieron sus hogares y pertenencias. Una mujer perdió su pierna y un hombre perdió la vida. El resto de la isla sintió este temblor pero al estar lejos del epicentro se ha podido recuperar mas pronto pero el área sur tiene a muchas personas damnificadas. Muchas escuelas fueron destruidas,muchas casas colapsaron y muchas personas tienen sus casas comprometidas ya que tienen grandes grietas. Las capas teutónicas no han dejado de moverse y esto causa que muchas estructuras sigan agrietándose y hasta derrumbes han ocurrido despues de este primer terremoto.

Y para que tengan una idea clara de porque esto esta pasando Puerto Rico esta localizado en una zona propensa no solo  a los  huracanes también a los terremotos.La isla de Puerto Rico se encuentra  en medio de la Placa Tectónica del Caribe localizada en el  Sur y la Placa Tectónica de Norteamérica localizada en el Norte.  Estas Placas. Tectónicas se mueven  en sentido contrario una a la otra y esto provoca que con la más mínima liberación de energía, la isla tiemble diariamente. En adición,Puerto Rico está entre dos trincheras: La Trinchera de los Muertos localizada al Sur  y la Trinchera  de Puerto Rico. Y esta Trinchera es  la segunda  más peligrosa del mundo, donde se encuentra el punto más profundo del océano Atlántico y el mismo es 9,200 metros bajo el nivel del mar. Puerto Rico tiene 504 fallas  entre las cuales se encuentran el Cañón de Guayanilla donde se encuentra el epicentro de los recientes temblores, Cañón de la Mona, Pasaje de Mona, Zona Sísmica del Sombrero, Zona de la Falla Septentrional, Depresión de las Islas Vírgenes, Plataforma de Islas Vírgenes, Zona Oriental de la República Dominicana, Región Central de Puerto Rico y la Zona de Falla de los 19° N. Y todas estas fallas están en continúa actividad.

En adición a todo esto tenemos problemas con la salud mental de los damnificados que viven en el área del epicentro ya que tienen ansiedad,depresión y ataques de pánico al no estar acostumbrados a los constantes temblores los cuales pueden llegar a ser 28 diariamente. A esto se le añade  que en estos días fue descubierto un almacén con suministros del tiempo del Huracán María los cuales estaban vencidos. Esto despertó la indignación del pueblo y están protestando por el mal uso del dinero y la falta de consideración hacia los menos validos.

Aún así,el pueblo se ha levantado a ayudar,muchas personas han ido los pueblos afectados. Sacando de su tiempo y dinero. Negocios,Iglesias,Celebridades y entidades sin fines de lucro han puesto su semilla para que el sur se recupere. Y tu puedes hacer lo mismo. Aquí les dejo una lista de algunas entidades que están ayudando a la recuperación de la isla:

Salvation Army
       
Brigada Solidaria del Oeste

The Happy Givers

PRxPR – RELIEF & REBUILD FUND

World Central Kitchen

Hispanic Federation Unidos Program

  2. I know Puerto Rico is going through some rough times, but I'm glad to hear what's going on from someone actually living there. Stay strong and know people support you.

  3. That is very, very sad. My home country gets quite a few earthquakes and I did live through one that was over 6. I remember how the Earth simply left from under my feet, it was such a horrible thing to go through and it felt like it lasted forever. I didn't know what to do or where to run, I just remembered to go under a door frame. In 1977 we had a 7.7 earthquake that destroyed half of the capital. It must be so horrible for those people in Puerto Rico to live with the fear and anxiety every time the earth starts moving again.
