Minutes ago a 6.0-magnitude earthquake struck 9.1 km southeast of Esmeraldas, Ecuador at a depth of 26.5km.
As usual, the exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be changed again later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports, but it is unlikely.
The earthquake was most felt by a number of towns or cities that are close to the epicenter of the quake.
