The 7.8-magnitude earthquake that struck off Ecuador's coast has now killed 350 people, President Rafael Correa said.
At least 2,068 people were injured in the quake, which destroyed buildings and roads, and knocked out power.
Around 230 aftershocks rattled survivors, who left their homes to gather in the streets.
President Correa toured the city of Portoviejo inside the disaster zone, speaking with victims and surveying the damage.
He said the post-quake reconstruction will cost "billions of dollars", adding that the death is likely to rise even further.
Rescuers in Ecuador pulled out three survivors from the rubble of a flattened shopping centre, more than 32 hours after a major earthquake.
