Puentes y casas derrumbadas: así quedó Ecuador tras terremoto [+Fotos]

Puentes derrumbados, viviendas colapsadas, fallas en el servicio eléctrico y al menos 77 personas fallecidas y centenas de heridos causó el terremoto de 7,6 grados en la escala abierta de Richter registrado este sábado en Ecuador.

Hugo Yepes, del Instituto Geofísico de la Escuela Politécnica Nacional de Ecuador, el movimiento sísmico tiene relación con la zona de contacto entre las placas de Nazca y Sudamericana, donde se generan frecuentemente terremotos, por lo que “era el sitio más probable” para que ocurriera, reseñó EFE.

En Quito, tras el temblor las comunicaciones presentan fallos, presumiblemente por congestión en las líneas telefónicas por la angustia que generó el sismo, sentido en casi todo el país.

En algunos lugares, como en un sector del valle de Los Chillos, aledaño a la ciudad, incluso han informado del corte del fluido eléctrico por cortocircuitos en las líneas de transmisión de energía.

En Guayaquil, medios reportaron una persona muerta tras el colapso de un puente ubicado en Universidad Vicente Rocafuerte.  Ciudadanos también reportaron daños en edificios.
