The USGS Recognizes Dianne Lopez-Trujillo During Hispanic Heritage Month

What happens when a 6.4 magnitude earthquake strikes Puerto Rico and the public needs critical information? How does a mostly English-speaking science agency reach a mostly Spanish-speaking public?

The USGS relies on its greatest asset – its employees! In the case of the Southwestern Puerto Rico earthquake sequence, Dianne Lopez-Trujillo is one employee from the USGS Caribbean-Florida Water Science Center that stepped up to make a difference for those in need.
