Early Saturday morning in Japan, a powerful earthquake rocked the country with a 7.3-magnitude reading. Internet viewers continued to take in the drone videos of destruction as the country started to dig its way out of the rubble. Late on Saturday night, Ecuador felt a quake that was (by preliminary readings) even more powerful. The above photo shows residents outside a clinic in nearby Colombia, which was also rocked by the quake and should speak volumes to the intensity of this catastrophe. Photos from Ecuador’s capital of Quito show some of the worst devastation.
