Earthquake hit Ecuador today

A Richter scale 7.1 earthquake hit Ecuador at about 7am this morning. The epicentre was about 175 km southeast of Quito and its depth was 211 km. Thank God that there was little damage done because the epicentre was very deep. So far there has been no death and only one person is injured. We felt nothing and only knew about it when my friend in New York asked me how I was affected by the earthquake.



  1. Although this comes a little late, it’s good to know you’re safe. The few times there were tremors in Quito, we slept through them too because they were mild and only found out about them much later from friends!
