LEWISBURG — “Heartbreaking” is a word two residents of the Central Susquehanna Valley are using to describe their feelings about the devastation rocking Puerto Rico following a series of earthquakes that have struck the island in recent days.

Rosalie Rodriguez, director of Multicultural Student Services at Bucknell University, is one of four university staff members who were in Puerto Rico when a magnitude 6.4 quake struck the island Jan. 7.
