Me llamo Kate Allstadt. Soy una investigadora geofísica del Servicio Geológico de los Estados Unidos en Golden, Colorado. Estoy aquí 
en Puerto Rico, en la ciudad de Ponce, con algunos colegas y estamos aquí para delinear la falla de tierra que ocurrió debido a este terremoto, así que estamos delineando cosas como caída de rocas y deslizamientos de tierra y licuefacción, así como desplazamiento lateral que es lo que vemos en este lugar.
