Puerto Rico - Population

Aftershocks continue to rattle Puerto Rico after it was hit by its biggest earthquake in a century in early January, which destroyed infrastructure and temporarily left hundreds of thousands without electricity. The U.S. Geological Survey reported in late January that aftershocks are likely to persist for several years, although at a gradually slowing frequency; it also estimated that there is currently at least a 25% chance of a magnitude 6 or greater earthquake within the next 12 months. The USGA’s report came shortly after the federal government released long-delayed disaster-relief funding worth USD 8.2 billion to island authorities, while publishing guidelines for Puerto Rico to request an additional USD 8.3 billion of funding. Meanwhile, available data confirms the economy remains in a fragile state: Although activity increased tepidly for the second consecutive month in November, it slowed from October.
