U.S. Donates $1 Million in Post-Quake Aid to Ecuador

PEDERNALES, Ecuador – Washington is providing $1 million in aid to Ecuador as the Andean nation works to recover from the magnitude-7.8 earthquake that struck the country’s northern Pacific coast 10 days ago, U.S. Ambassador Todd Chapman said on Tuesday.

The U.S. has sent a plane with more than 83 tons of building materials, kitchen equipment and water containers, among other items, Chapman said during a visit to Pedernales, the epicenter of the disaster.

American military personnel are working at the airport in nearby Manta, where a U.S.-supplied temporary mobile control tower was expected to arrive on Tuesday as a replacement for the tower that was destroyed by the quake, the ambassador said.

The temblor left 655 people dead and forced thousands of people from their homes.

Chapman, accompanied by Canadian Ambassador Marianick Tremblay and British envoy Patrick Mullee, toured a store in Pedernales and visited the military command center in the town.
