Pictures taken of the Earthquake’s Destruction

Posted by on May 1, 2016



A family of four lost their lives in this home that dreadful evening.


The smell of decaying corpses was horrible. This is taken from the town of Tarqui, just outside of Manta. One of the areas hardest hit. This section is being blocked off because all of the buildings are unstable and the whole neighborhood will have to be demolished.


In this home were 20 family members and extended family members. 7 lost their lives but 13 were able to be rescued.


This is the beachfront in Manta. The machinery is putting all of the ruble from destroyed homes and buildings here. People are searching through it for their belongings, items of value and other things personal to them.
