Queens neighborhood's concern for Ecuador victims

- Rescuers in Ecuador continue to search for survivors following Saturday's massive earthquake. Meantime, local business owners in Corona, Queens, are planning a fundraiser for the quake victims.

A mostly Ecuadorian street in Corona is home to food trucks and businesses. Everywhere there is growing concern about the earthquake's devastation.

Saturday's massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake caused major damage along Ecuador's pacific coast. More than 350 are dead, and more than 2,500 injured. The military is activated and rescue workers are arriving from around the world. The urgent concern is for the missing.

Throughout the bustling Latino communities of Queens, fear and frustration are mounting because there is no way to communicate with family members.

At the Sabor Latino restaurant, diners are supporting each other through this difficult time. Co-owner Juan Inga is taking notice. Sabor Latino is planning a fund raiser on May 1, and will donate everything to the earthquake victims. Other businesses plan to pitch in as well.
