The United States Geological Survey (USGS) confirmed Ecuador, Panama, Colombia and Chile had all suffered powerful quakes within the space of 40 minutes overnight.

It was confirmed Ecuador had been struck by a 6.3 magnitude tremor, although there were no reports of casualties and damage.

The quake hit at a depth of 69 miles about 58 miles south of the city of Ambato.

The Andean nation has frequent seismic activity. In 2016, a devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck Ecuador’s Pacific coast, killing more than 650 people.

In neighbouring Colombia a 5.5 magnitude quake rocked its border region with Panama.

There were no reports of damage or casualties across the two nations.

But, moments later, USGS officials said Chile had also been hit by a 6.0 magnitude quake.

Again, there were no reports of damage or casualties in the immediate aftermath.
