Karen strengthened into a tropical storm — again — on Tuesday and is forecast to bring wind and rain to eastern Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands today.

Also, shortly before midnight Monday, a 6.0 magnitude earthquake struck about 50 miles off the coast of Puerto Rico, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. And although a series of aftershocks were felt, officials reported that there were no reports of significant damage.
