Rescue crews are searching desperately through rubble for survivors of a magnitude-7.8 earthquake that struck coastal Ecuador last Saturday 17th. Death toll jumps to 525 with more than 4,000 injured, and the number is expected to rise as rescue teams dig through the rubble.
The hardest-hit area was the coastal Manabi Province, where about 525 people died. The cities of Manta, Portoviejo and Pedernales, a tourist destination, saw the most devastation but damage was widespread throughout the country. The earthquake hit Saturday around 7 p.m. while people were going about their evening. The tremors buckled overpasses trapping drivers.
A shopping mall partially collapsed on customers and several buildings have been flattened with their content spilled into the streets. All six coastal provinces -- Guayas, Manabi, Santo Domingo, Los Rios, Esmeraldas and Galapagos -- are in state of emergencies. Getting supplies and rescue crews to emergency areas has been a challenge.
