Ecuador Earthquake: Death Toll Jumps to 238;
More than 1,500 Injured

(CNN)Rescue crews searched desperately through rubble Sunday for survivors of a magnitude-7.8 earthquake that struck coastal Ecuador.

.

The death toll soared from under 100 on Saturday night to 238 on Sunday afternoon — and it’s expected to rise. At least 1,500 people were injured, said Ricardo Peherrera of Ecuador’s national emergency management office.

.

The hardest-hit area was the coastal Manabi Province, where about 200 people died, Peherrera said. The cities of Manta, Puerto Viejo and Pedernales, a tourist destination, saw the most devastation but damage was widespread.

.

“It was the worst experience of my life,” survivor Jose Meregildo said Sunday about the tremors that violently shook his house in Guayaquil, 300 miles away from the quake’s epicenter. “Everybody in my neighborhood was screaming saying it was going to be the end of the world.”

.

Residents remain on the streets for fear of aftershocks in Pedernales on April 17.

.

The earthquake hit Saturday night, buckling overpasses, causing houses to collapse and knocking out power in Guayaquil, Ecuador’s most populous city, authorities said. People left their homes and wandered around, some sleeping in the streets.

People looking for family and friends frantically dug with their hands and tools until excavation equipment arrived. Emergency officials recovered one body from the scene of a bridge collapse there.
Video showed rescuers looking for a young girl underneath the rubble of the Hotel Miami in the province of Manabi, finally pulling her out and taking her away on a stretcher.

Armed forces, police deployed

In a race to help residents, Ecuador deployed 10,000 soldiers and 4,600 police officers to the affected areas. The armed forces built mobile hospitals in Pedernales and Portoviejo and set up temporary shelters.

.

The military also brought in more K9 units to aid the search for survivors — and bodies.

.

“The lack of water and communication remains a big problem,” Peherrera told CNN en Espal. “Many highways are in bad shape, especially in the mountainous area because it has been raining recently due to (the) El Ni weather phenomenon.”

.

The governments of Colombia, Chile, Spain and Mexico are sending help for rescue efforts, Vice President Jorge Glas said.
