Puerto Rican natural wonder destroyed by earthquake

One of the most popular of Puerto Rico’s natural wonders, the “Punta Ventana”, collapsed , after a 5.8-magnitude earthquake rocked the island.Called “Window Point”, in English, the stone-arched natural rock formation was located at the southeast district of Guayanilla. The quake was shallow at 3.7 miles beneath the surface with an epicenter 8 miles south-southeast of Indios, the U.S. Geological Survey said, enough to rattle the southwestern corner of the Caribbean island. It was the largest in a series of quakes that have struck the area over the past two weeks. Several homes were knocked off their pillars in the towns of Guanica and Guayanilla. Television images showed a number of elevated homes that crushed vehicles parked beneath the main floor. No fatalities have been reported.
