Welcome to the Muisne, Ecuador Earthquake Virtual Clearinghouse




On Saturday, April 16, a M7.8 earthquake struck offshore of the west coast of northern Ecuador (11:58pm local time on Saturday, April 16). The EERI community extends its sympathy to the victims as rescue and relief work continues.

EERI has set up this virtual clearinghouse website as part of its Learning from Earthquakes Program and it will be a central location for data collected by colleagues, members, collaborators and contributors. EERI is also contacting members and colleagues in Equador for information and observations. For current and timely information about the earthquake, please also see the USGS event page, and the PAGER report.

Any members with information about earthquake impacts or who plan to conduct reconnaissance should contact Marjorie Greene, EERI interim LFE Program Manager.
