The major cities hit by the earthquake were in Manta and Portoviejo.  Below is an image of the rubble left behind in Pedernales, Manabi, Ecuador.                         The Latino Graduate Student Coalition (LGSC) and Cornell Latin America Student Society (CLASS) are hosting an information table with cash and in-kind donation sources for relief efforts.
