DISASTERS: EARTHQUAKES :
Earthquake in Ecuador
Earthquake in Ecuador
On April 16, a 7.8 earthquake struck Ecuadors central coast. The quake was centered 27 kilometers (16 miles) south-southeast of Muisne, Ecuador. A state of emergency has been declared in six provinces (Esmeraldas, Santo Domingo, Manab Guayas, Los Rs, and Santa Elena) along the western coast. We are concerned for the welfare of U.S. citizens in the affected areas and are dedicated to providing information to help them make informed decisions about their safety and travel to, from, and around the affected area.
We express our deepest condolences to all those affected by this earthquake. We are closely monitoring the situation and remain in close contact with Ecuadorian authorities. The U.S. Embassy is working with the Ecuadorian authorities to verify the welfare and whereabouts of U.S. citizens in the area at the time of the earthquake.
We encourage you to closely monitor www.Travel.State.Gov for important information. Please see the Emergency Message on the homepage of the U.S. Embassy in Quito for further information about this event, as well as contact information that U.S. citizens in the affected area can use to contact the Embassy for emergency consular assistance. In addition, we strongly encourage U.S. citizens traveling abroad to register with the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) at travel.state.gov.
During normal working hours, U.S. citizens in Ecuador who need emergency assistance can contact the U.S. Consulate General in Guayaquil at 04-371-7000 or the U.S. Embassy in Quito at 02-398-5000.
For emergency assistance to U.S. citizens outside of working hours, contact the U.S. Consulate General Guayaquil at 04-371-7000 or the U.S. Embassy Quito at 099-788-3222.
If calling from the United States about affected U.S citizen loved ones who need assistance, please contact us at 1-888-407-4747 (from the United States and Canada), +1-202-501-4444 (from all other countries), and email EcuadorEmergencyUSC@state.gov if you have additional questions or concerns.
You may inform the Department of State of U.S. citizens in need of assistance in Ecuador by visiting https://tfa.state.gov/, selecting 2016 Ecuador Earthquake, and providing as much information as possible.
We urge U.S. citizens in Ecuador who are safe to contact their loved ones directly and/or update their social media status.
We strongly discourage you from traveling to Ecuador to provide direct assistance; those who are not trained emergency response officials often end up requiring assistance themselves. Instead, follow the advice of established organizations which are actively providing aid such as The Center for International Disaster Information at www.cidi.org. Your help in the form of donations to aid organizations will have a far greater positive impact than putting yourself at risk by traveling to Ecuador.
If you would like to offer assistance, please visit the Ecuador Earthquake – How to Donate/Contribute page on the Embassys website.
