Walmart has more than 12,600 associates and 37 facilities in Puerto Rico, all of which are now operational, the company said.

Trump declared an emergency on the island after the January 7 quake and a major disaster declaration would give Puerto additional relief resources.

Trump's declaration of a major disaster in Puerto Rico makes federal funding available for repairs, temporary housing and low-priced loans "to help individuals and business owners recover from the effects of the disaster", the White House said.

Prior to this declaration, Puerto Rico was awaiting funding that Congress appropriated for the island after Hurricane Maria devastated the island, destroying its electrical grid in 2017. To date, only $15 billion of that money has been distributed.

Puerto Rico will have to "submit budget plans to its federally mandated fiscal control board" and "bolster its property registration database" to access the $8.3 billion in disaster prevention funds and $8.2 billion in recovery funds, the Times reports.

In a tweet by the Puerto Rico Seismic Network, No warning or Tsunami watch is being issued for the island.
