ECUADOR – A damaging, powerful magnitude M6.8 earthquake occurred yesterday, 03/18/2023 at 17:12 UTC onshore Ecuador. The epicenter is approximately 36 polar degrees away from Raspberry Shake Station R5DDF in Spring, TX. The quake was recorded very well – and rare – PcP** wave phase (P-wave which has been refracted thru the mantle, reflected off the outer core, and travelled back thru the mantle to the Earth’s surface at our precise location) and it is observed around 17:22 UTC. Shaking was felt as far away as Peru.
