Effects of Multiple Disasters in PR

From the WashPost: Puerto Rico earthquake aftershocks again rattle coastline as residents deal with disaster after disaster.  An excerpt:

The hurricane, the resultant struggle for survival, the unsettled governance and now days of strong quakes have deteriorated the emotional and mental health of some of the poorest and most vulnerable citizens of the United States.

From USAToday, this article: 950 earthquakes have hit Puerto Rico so far this year. Why? Blame it on an ‘earthquake swarm’
