RSOE map has way more quakes than USGS shows.

“A lot of the earthquake depths are now reported at the autogenerated depth of 10km. The depth of the M5.7 quake was only 2km. Before the 2km earthquake the earthquakes were a little deeper. Do you think they’re reporting the depths at the autogenerated 10km to keep the truth from the citizens that the magma is actually getting closer to the surface?”

Yes, they are very poor at infrastructure. The town Ponce is also in a district of the same name. Maybe it is affluent enough to get restored more quickly than poorer parts.

Here’s why Puerto Rico has seen so many earthquakes lately.
Excerpt: Despite the natural explanation for frequent quakes, Vanacore said that what “we are currently observing is the first time we are experiencing this level of activity” — in terms of both earthquake magnitude and frequency.

News | NASA Maps Ground Changes From Puerto Rico Quake.
Excerpt: The scientists found that the greatest displacement from the flyover area occurred west of the city of Ponce (identified by the green star), not far from the quake’s offshore epicenter. They recorded up to 5.5 inches (14 centimeters) of ground change there. The ground appeared to shift downward and slightly to the west.

Quakes look to be getting larger. Epicenters are pretty shallow. I’m still thinking magma moving below ground. The area is quite near the subduction zone.

I agree … they appear bigger. And there was a 2nd 5.8 quake south down in Dominica.
I guess the plate is moving….

I don’t see any news articles explaining things …..

“There was not much of a hint prior to this that anything like this would happen,” said James Davis, a research professor at Columbia’s Dougherty Earth Observatory. “I don’t think we understand yet why that has happened.”

This s scary – just now – looking at the RSOE MAP those little live-lert messages began popping up on the side. 2 or 3 for P.R. (4+Ms) and at the same time 2 or 3 for Alaska (2 & 3 M). All at the same time.
