The U.S. territory has undergone hundreds of earthquakes and aftershocks since December 28 that have caused structural damage to thousands of buildings and homes.

U.S. President Donald Trump suggested in July past year that Puerto Rico could not be trusted to manage federal aid, saying it was "in the hands of incompetent people and very corrupt people".

According to the USGS, the center of the quake hit near the town of Guanica. Recent quakes have toppled homes and schools.

Puerto Rico Governor Wanda Vázquez on Wednesday said almost 8,000 of the island's residents were in government or makeshift shelters, majority due to fear their homes would collapse if there was another big quake.

Ratings agency Moody's Investors Service said on Tuesday the earthquakes posed a setback in terms of the island's economic recovery and ability to retain residents and businesses.

The Trump administration is ending its months-long hold of more than $8 billion in disaster aid relief for Puerto Rico, according to a report.
