A vigil for Puerto Rico was held on Tuesday evening at Union Square, after a series of earthquakes struck the U.S. territory in recent days. The series included a 6.4-magnitude earthquake early Tuesday, and one death was reported along with multiple injuries, collapsed homes and widespread power outages.

In solidarity, vigil attendees walk in a circle.
