A seven member Earthquake Engineering Field Investigation Team (EEFIT) visited affected regions of Ecuador following the April 16th earthquake near the town of Muisne. The team flew into the city of Manta on May 27th and spent 10 days moving further north, closer to the epicentre, to visit Portoviejo, Bahia and Pedernales, conducting a number of tests, surveys and interviews. Fiona Hughes, PhD Student at the University of Cambridge, Engineering Department was part of the team. Congratulations to Fiona!
