SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — Two strong earthquakes have struck Puerto Rico within minutes of each other.
The quakes, with magnitudes of 5.1 and 5.3 respectively, occurred three minutes apart just after 2 a.m. local time Saturday in the Mona Passage, just to the west of the island. A smaller aftershock was reported a few minutes later.
There were no immediate reports of damage.

The tremor was felt at a hotel on the northwestern coast of Puerto Rico, said Jose Caro, an employee at Marriott Courtyard Aguadilla.
"Everything is OK. Some people went out of their rooms, but everything is back to normal," said Caro, reached by phone from Washington.
all this and right after comet lovejoy stayed intact from close call with sun and seems to be recharging its tail. hmmm
“It’s absolutely astounding,” says Karl Battams of the Naval Research Lab in Washington D.C. “I did not think the comet’s icy core was big enough to survive plunging through the several million degree solar corona for close to an hour, but Comet Lovejoy is still with us.”
"I'd guess the comet's core must have been at least 500 meters in diameter; otherwise it couldn't have survived so much solar heating," says Matthew Knight. "A significant fraction of that mass would have been lost during the encounter. What's left is probably much smaller than the original comet."
As I have atendancy to do, I checked myself
I had a search through NEIC and there was no 7's that day anywhere in the World.
And oh, whoever posted that 120 micron GEE waveform at C.GO05 or C.GO09, that quake was very minor. As in not even a 4.
