Re: [Geology2] Re: [California's Earthquake Forum] Fwd: [NCDXC Chat] FW: Ecuador earthquake

An excerpt from another email, ham radio based... HC is the designator
for that country, 2 and 4 are sub-sections...


Most earthquake damage has occurred in the Guayaquil (HC2) and
Portoviejo/Manta (HC4) areas of Ecuador. Well-known DXer Lilian de
Ayala, HC4L, in Portoviejo - the capital of Manabi province - is
safe, but some structures in Portoviejo and Manta suffered severe
damage, with many victims reported to have been buried in the rubble
of collapsed buildings and homes. Electrical power and commercial
telecommunication systems have been either destroyed or knocked out
in the affected area, and hams in the HC4 district have been
operating by using mobile stations or battery power. Many roads have
been rendered impassable because of earthquake rubble.

The Cadena HC emergency frequency is now active and running 24 hours
per day on 7.060 LSB. Hams in Ecuador have been reported very busy
coordinating search-and-rescue activities.
