Ecuador earthquake: Death toll jumps to over 400; more than 2000 wounded

The catastrophic earthquake (M7.8 - 27km SSE of Muisne, Ecuador) that destroyed buildings in Ecuador on Saturday became far more devastating Sunday, when the death toll soared to 238 -- and it's expected to rise.At least 1,500 people were injured, said Ricardo Peñaherrera of Ecuador's national emergency management office."It was the worst experience of my life," survivor Jose Meregildo said Sunday about the tremors that violently shook his house in Guayaquil, 300 miles away from the quake's epicenter."Everybody in my neighborhood was screaming saying it was going to be the end of the world."

Fears of 'THE BIG ONE' as FIVE earthquakes hit Asia in just 72 hours

SCIENTISTS fear a monster earthquake could be about to strike after a FIFTH quake in just 72 hours struck Asia, killing at least 20 people. The latest quake this morning, measuring 7.3 on the Richter scale, injured more than 1,000 and trapped people in collapsed buildings, only a day after a quake killed nine people in the same region. Rescue crews searched for survivors of a magnitude 7.3 earthquake that struck Japan's Kyushu Island, the same region rattled by a 6.2 quake two days earlier.
The death toll in the latest Kyushu earthquake is 16 people and a previous earthquake that struck the area on Thursday had killed nine people.

A strong earthquake has struck Myanmar, the US Geological Survey reports, with tremors in India and China sending residents out into the streets. The 6.9 magnitude quake took place at a depth of 135 km (84 miles) northwest of Mandalay. Casualties have been reported in north-east India. It could be felt in the northeast Indian state of Assam, where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are staying. The royal couple, who are staying in a national park, were unharmed. Tremors are relatively common in Myanmar (formerly known as Burma).

Cyclone Megh
- Another Arabian Sea tropical cyclone, may track near Socotra Island and mainland Yemen roughly one week after Cyclone Chapala made an extremely rare pass through the region, triggering destructive flash flooding.
- Cyclone Megh is expected to slowly intensify into the weekend, but is not expected to become nearly as intense as Chapala.
- At any rate, Megh is expected to move west or west-southwest, tracking near Socotra Island Sunday, as either the equivalent of a strong tropical storm or, perhaps a Category 1 hurricane.
- Heavy rain leading to flash flooding, strong winds, coastal flooding and dangerous surf are possible on Socotra with Megh.

Non-stop torrential rains since Monday night pounded several parts of Chennai and its suburbs and Puducherry, triggering a deluge completely disrupting normal life as army was deployed on Tuesday in two areas to undertake rescue on a war footing.

The death toll in rain-related incidents touched 188. Twelve trains leaving Chennai Egmore were cancelled due to water overflowing on railway tracks between Villupuram - Tambaram section. Also, eleven trains were diverted.

The situation has worsened in suburban areas of Tambaram and Mudichur after the Chembarakam lake overflowed and an unprecedented 26,000 cusecs of water was being released flooding the downstream areas. These areas had already suffered heavily during the earlier spells of rain.

Two columns of army's Garrison Infantry Battalion have been pressed into service in Tambaram and Oorapakkam after the Tamil Nadu government sought military assistance. The Navy is also on stand-by.

Tropical Depression Twentyfour
·         Tropical depression Twentyfour is forecast to strike the Philippines as a typhoon at about 18:00 GMT on 17 October.
·         Twentyfour is expected to bring 1-minute maximum sustained winds to the region of around 231 km/h (143 mph). Wind gusts in the area may be considerably higher.
·         According to the Saffir-Simpson damage scale the potential property damage and flooding from a storm of Twentyfour's strength (category 4) at landfall includes: Storm surge generally 4.0-5.5 metres (13-18 feet) above normal.
·         Curtainwall failures with some complete roof structure failures on small residences. Shrubs, trees, and all signs are blown down. Complete destruction of mobile homes. Extensive damage to doors and windows. Low-lying escape routes may be cut by rising water 3-5 hours before arrival of the center of the storm. Major damage to lower floors of structures near the shore.
·         Terrain lower than 3 meters (10 feet) above sea level may be flooded requiring massive evacuation of residential areas as far inland as 10 km (6 miles). There is also the potential for flooding further inland due to heavy rain.
