A 6.4-magnitude earthquake struck just north of the island of Puerto Rico early on Monday morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
The earthquake occurred at 12:01 a.m. local time and was centered about 96 km (60 miles) northwest of the capital of San Juan. The earthquake was felt across Puerto Rico and parts of the Dominican Republic.
According to the Associated Press, residents in San Juan reportedly felt buildings sway and had items fall in their homes.
@NWS_Southern_US tweeted: "6.4 magnitude #earthquake ~35 miles off coast of Puerto Rico early this morning (1/13/2014) NO #tsunami threat!"
There have been no reports of a tsunami. The National Weather Service in San Juan said early on Monday that there was no threat for a tsunami after reviewing tidal gauges following the quake.
There have also been no reports of any injuries.
This comes just nearly past the anniversary of the devastating earthquake that shook Haiti in 2010.
