Russia sends 30 tons of humanitarian cargo to quake-stricken Ecuador

On April 21, EMERCOM of Russia sent an airplane with humanitarian cargo on board to quake-stricken Ecuador. The Ilyushin Il-76 carries 30 tons of humanitarian aid: food, tents and mobile electric stations.

A 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck Ecuador on April 16th, causing massive destruction and killing over 550 people.

According to Ecuador's Geophysics Institute, the epicenter of the quake was located near the town of Pedernales (province of Manabi) at a depth of 20 km. Ecuador's vice-president said that the earthquake was the most devastating one since 1979.

In the quake-stricken provinces on the Pacific coast, houses, roads, bridges and power lines were destroyed. President Rafael Correa, who is on a visit to Rome, signed a decree to introduce a state of emergency in the country.

The capital of Ecuador, Quito, was left without electricity for a while, although the supplies of electric power to the city have been resumed. The earthquake interrupted the work of the state-run refinery Petroecuador Esmeraldas that produced 110,000 barrels of oil a day.
