 A powerful 6.6-magnitude earthquake shook Puerto Rico today just a day after a weaker quake destroyed the island's famed Playa Ventana rock formation. 
According to information provided by Dailymail, the shallow quake with a depth of 4.3 miles, which hit just south of Indios in the south west of the island, has not caused a significant Tsunami threat, according to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre.  
'It was super strong. I could hear the vibrations everywhere,' one witness located nine miles from the epicentre posted on the European Mediterranean Seismological Centre website.
Another witness in Caimital, 41 miles away, posted that the quake lasted around 30 seconds.  
A 5.8-magnitude quake that hit Puerto Rico before dawn on Monday destroyed one of the US territory's famous tourist attractions.
The quake caused the collapse of a renowned rock formation known as the Playa Ventana in Guayanilla.

Residents shared photos of the top half of the natural wonder, also dubbed the Window Beach, which had completely broken off. 
It is known as Window Beach because the rock formation was raised above the ocean with a massive hole that gave the feeling of looking at the sea through a window.
