AP reports: "Aid began to flow in Sunday to areas devastated by Ecuador's strongest
earthquake in decades and the death toll continued to rise as people
left homeless hunkered down for another night outside in the dark.
Officials said the quake killed at least 246 people and injured more
than 2,500 along Ecuador's coast. Vice President Jorge Glas said the
toll was likely to rise because a large number of people remained unaccounted for, though he declined to say how many."
