From his Twitter account, the highest representative of the island’s diplomacy expressed condolences and solidarity to the people of that South American nation.

At least 11 deaths and considerable material damage were left in the Ecuadorian capital by the flood caused by torrential rain, according to the National Risk Management Service of that country.

The land displacement originated in the foothills of the Pichincha volcano and affected the northwestern area of ​​Quito, after several days of heavy downpours in the region.

Currents of water, mud and stones descended the steep La Gasca avenue, trapping vehicles and flooding houses and streets, according to images released by the press.

Due to the effects of the current rainy season, which since last October has hit 22 of the 24 provinces of that country, adding since last Sunday, 18 deaths and 24 injured, to the almost 2,800 affected and some 200 homeless.
