Quito, the capital, is in the north of the country.

Days after the earthquake, the country experienced difficulties distributing food and water to those in need, including the over 26 thousand survivors relocated to shelters.

These maps allow first responders to target heavily damaged area.

Large cities tend to have buildings more resistant to shaking than villages, therefore the damage is less for city dwellers than for villagers, on average.

The depth, location and focal mechanism of the earthquake are all consistent with rupture along the plate interface in the form of a megathrust earthquake.

A major earthquake in 1906 ruptured the plate interface for at least 400 km immediately northeast of the 2016 event.

On April 17 the International Charter on Space and Major Disasters was activated by UNITAR/UNOSAT on behalf of UN OCHA, thus providing for the charitable and humanitarian re-tasking of satellite assets.

A UNICEF representative reported that the government is considering relocating "one or two" towns in the aftermath of the earthquake.

The very large thrust earthquake was centered approximately 27 km (17 mi) from the towns of Muisne and Pedernales in a sparsely populated part of the country, and 170 km (110 mi) from the capital Quito, Ecuador lies above the destructive plate boundary where the Nazca Plate is subducting beneath the South American Plate.
