At approximately 2:00 am local time, an earthquake of 5.8 magnitude struck on the coast of Ecuador, about 20 km from Esmeraldas. Our onsite staff reports that everyone onsite in Quito are fine, but there were damages in some coastal cities, specially in Atacames and Tonsupa (beaches of the Esmeraldas province). Our thoughts are with the people of the affected areas.
