On April 17, 2016, rescue crews searched desperately through rubble for survivors of a magnitude-7.8 earthquake that struck coastal Ecuador. The death toll soared to 272. It has been estimated that at least 2,527 people were injured. The hardest-hit area was the coastal Manabi Province, where about 200 people died. The cities of Manta, Portoviejo and Pedernales saw the most devastation but damage was widespread throughout the country.
The exact ministry in Ecuador has yet to be determined but thousands have been impacted.
