Flood in Ecuador

Intense rain and flooding caused by the El Niño climate pattern have affected seventeen provinces in since Ecuador 20 February 2024. Provinces mostly impacted include Esmeraldas, Manabi, Santa Elena, Guayas, Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas, Los Ríos, and El Oro along the coastal region.

One person died in Santo Domingo de los Tsachilas province, after a vehicle fell into a sinkhole on the La Concordia-Monterrey-Las Villegas Highway. Homes, roads, and bridges have been damaged or destroyed due to the rapid rise in water levels. So far four deaths from dengue fever have been reported by the Ministry of Health as flooding has increased the threat of disease outbreaks such as stagnant pools becoming breeding grounds for mosquitoes and bacteria, increasing the incidence of insect- and water-borne diseases. Crops have been submerged, impacting local farmers and food production.

Emergency services are working tirelessly to rescue stranded individuals and provide aid. Authorities may issue mandatory evacuation orders for flood-prone communities over the coming days.
