Ecuador Rocked by Powerful Earthquake

Early yesterday, Ecuador was rocked by a 6.9-magnitude earthquake.  The quake was confined to the central region of the country, occurring 110 miles away from Quito, where tremors were felt. 

The epicenter was in the Amazonian province of Pastaza causing power outages but no casualties were reported.  The last time an earthquake of this magnitude was felt in this region was in 2007 when a 6.8 earthquake rocked the Peru-Ecuador border.
