Puerto Rico has been rattled by another earthquake.

This time, a 5.0 magnitude quake hit near Guanica Tuesday morning, the U.S. Geologic Survey reported.

It is the latest quake to rock the U.S. territory after a 6.4 magnitude earthquake in January, which followed a previous one that shook the area in December, CNN reported.

One person was killed in the January quake, which also collapsed buildings and cut power for 1.4 million people on the island, CNN reported at the time.

There are no reports of damage or injuries as a result of Tuesday's tremor, USA Today reported.
