Officials said its epicenter was in the Ecuadorian municipality of Balao, near the Peruvian border. “I went out into the street because I saw people getting out of their cars in panic,” Magali Escandon told AFP.

“So far 12 deaths have been reported (11 in El Oro province and one in Azuay province),” Ecuador’s president said in a tweet. Social media reports said other cities including Guayaquil, Quito, Manabi and Manta. Tremors were also felt. No casualties or major damage has been reported in Peru so far.
