EARTHQUAKE IN ECUADOR

The video herewith has been taken over the cities Manta and Pedernales by our drone operator. This earthquake caused widespread damage and the death of 587 people to date, and was followed by half a thousand aftershocks. The event will be scientifically explained in the 2016 edition of our "Disaster Diaries".

However, it seems that despite many research efforts by seismologists, scientifically replicable prediction of earthquakes can not be done for a day, month or even year. The best they can do is give some probability that a segment of the crust may rupture in a few decades period.... leaving many population unprepared.
