Meanwhile, the Navy Oceanographic Institute of Ecuador (INOC) ruled out the possibility that a tsunami is generated in the national coasts and islands of the Galapagos Ecuador (1,000 km from the shore).
On 29 October, an earthquake of magnitude 4 strongly shook Quito and its environs, causing no casualties but some damage. That same day two other tremors were unrelated to the first.
The Ecuadorian government plans to issue housing standards at the high seismic risk that is registered in the country, located on the so-called Pacific Ring of Fire, an area sensitive to seismic activity.
