We were hearing rumblings about this last week, but it appeared that the series’ production would continue.

Last Tuesday, Puerto Rico was hit with a 6.4 magnitude earthquake along its southern coast, reportedly the island’s biggest in a century. There was another quake Saturday that shook the island with a reading of 5.9.
