An earthquake of magnitude 7.8 hit the coastal region of Ecuador on April, 16th at 23:58 UTC. This major event was followed by several shocks (http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/map). The tasks consists on drawing roads, towns, villages, for coordinating help efforts from government institutions and civil society initiatives of rescue. Infrastructure has been damaged and the main access roads are blocked, leaving coastal towns disconnected from rescue efforts.

Please add a comment describing what you mapped, for example "added buildings and a residential road”.
Realign imagery if needed.
Look carefully for isolated buildings and roads.

Instructions on how to map can be found here.
Elements to map:
Trace buildings accurately. Zoom in for more accurate tracing.
Be sure buildings are squared. Use the S key (in iD) or the Q key (in JOSM).
building = yes
Outline Residential Areas after all the buildings are traced. Residential Areas are two or more buildings. Areas composed of more than two houses.
Roads Trace all roads that connect buildings and Residential Areas to the road system.
Primary roads connect medium and large cities, at least two lanes in each direction, usually separated by a physical feature.
Secondary roads connect medium and large cities, at least two lanes in each direction without physical separation.
Tertiary roads connect villages and major streets in towns of some importance
Minor roads connecting villages and hamlets are tagged as "unclassified"
Residential roads are streets within a town or village
In addition to using the highway tag, one can indicate the physical surface of the road with the surface tag. Generically, a hard surface (asphalt, cobblestone, concrete...) is indicated with surface=paved and a soft one (ground, sand...) with surface=unpaved.
surface = *
