Well-known natural stone arch in Puerto Rico collapses as result of earthquake

Punta Ventana, a famed natural stone arch along Puerto Rico’s southern coast, collapsed Monday when a 5.8 magnitude earthquake shook the island, according to the Miami Herald.

The quake struck around 6:30 a.m. and destroyed the arch, which had sustained damage from a series of tremors that began in late December, according to Glidden Lopez, a spokesman for the Guayanilla municipality.
