The Puerto Rico Strong Motion Program (PRSMP) has 114 strong motion stations and 21 seismically instrumented structures in five (5) countries. This paper explains how the PRSMP has been able to recover from the detrimental effects of Hurricane María to become a more robust, strong motion network in terms of instrumentation with 100% of the data loggers with recent technology, in terms of energy with 48/90 (53%) of the free field stations in the Island with photovoltaic systems, and in terms of communication with 51/90 (57%) transmitting its data real time and developing two data centers. In addition, the southwest Seismic Sequence, with its main event on January 7, 2020, has allowed the increment of strong motion stations and the improvement of its communication in the region that covers from Ponce to Mayagüez.
