  据美国地质勘探局网站消息,1月13日10时01分许,阿根廷西部地区发生5.3级地震,震源深度162.9公里。有关专家对当地政府未对地震执行应急措施提出质疑。

  A former emergency management director told the Associated Press that emergency protocols were not followed after signs of the first earthquakes, raising concerns about the country’s disaster preparedness after Hurricane María. Nazario Lugo, who is also the current president of Puerto Rico’s Association of Emergency Managers, said the government chose not to act “until they were up to their neck in water.” Emergency Management Director Carlos Acevedo had previously acknowledged that the government had not yet completed an emergency plan for earthquakes. Since the aftermath of Hurricane María, scientists have warned that the island lacks proper attention and warning systems for such “physical threats.”

  Puerto Rico is still grappling with devastation from the earthquake last week and subsequent aftershocks, including a 5.9-magnitude quake on Saturday. The electricity is back on for most of the island, but Puerto Rico’s public utility is still asking residents to conserve energy.
