Earthquake: Followup #2

May 18 a pair of powerful aftershocks  rocked Ecuador’s coast, killing one person, injuring 85, and further damaging homes and other buildings.  In Quito we were roused just before 3 a.m. by the 6.8 aftershock which went on for a minute.  Another, also 6.8, struck just before noon.

An excellent blog about these aftershocks and Reach Beyond’s third medical team is on Reach Beyond’s Latin America blog, CalloftheAndes Weblog.

Team #3

Team #3:  Dr. Steve Nelson, Dr. Mauricio Coronel, Ralph Kurtenbach, & Hermann Schirmacher
