Earthquake in Ecuador

Ecuador has been hit by an even stronger earthquake than those hitting Japan recently. The Ecuadorian earthquake reached a magnitude of 7.8 in its centre by the coast. About 350 people were killed and 2,000 people injuried.

I suspect that there are more people killed and injuried in Ecuador than in Japan, not only because the quake was stronger, but also because the infrastructure and buildings might be of poorer quality. Ecuador is a poorer country than Japan. I hope enough help will go to the humans and dogs of Ecuador as well.
