LOOK: Bebot Abellanosa, Raul Del Mar felt the quake at the central bank
Their first thought was whether the cash piles and gold bars are secured as well.
Cebu Congressmen Rodrigo “Bebot” Abellanosa and Raul Del Mar were at the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas when the magnitude 6.3 earthquake hit Metro Manila and Luzon, as they were attending a meeting with the National Economic and Development Authority to discuss infrastructure projects for the province.
Shortly after the building shook, the politikos fled the building on to safer ground. Being at the central bank, they said they wanted to make sure that the piles of printed money and reserves will be kept intact.
That’s a unique priority to set!
