after a powerful 7.8 earthquake rattled the South American country’s central coast on Saturday, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Taipei.

Citing initial information provided by Taiwan’s representative office in Ecuador, the ministry said there are no reports of Taiwanese killed or injured in the capital of Quito and Machala, but that some in Guayaquil have remained unaccounted for because of a lack of communications.

“We are doing our best to gain a better understanding of those Taiwan nationals who are still out of contact,” the ministry said.      [SOURCE]
