The quake happened at around 3am ET early Sunday. The earthquake struck at a depth of around 6 miles according to the US Geological Survey. The tremor also caused a number of aftershocks according to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Center. There have currently been no reports of damage or injuries.

But people were woken, as the tremor rocked the nation.

Any earthquake which has a magnitude of more than 6 is categorised as ’Strong’ on the Richter Scale, which measures earthquake strength.

Ecuador lies along the Pacific’s so-called ‘Ring of Fire’.

The ‘Ring of Fire’ is surrounded by oceanic trenches and volcanic arcs, making it highly susceptible to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
