Chan orders rescue ops in quake-hit Abra
The Lapu-Lapu City Government is preparing to send its Collapsed Structure Search and Rescue Team from the Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (DRRMO) to assist earthquake victims in Abra province.
A 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck Luzon centered at Langilang, Abra on Wednesday at 8:43 a.m.
Chan said that he will be coordinating the deployment of DRRMO personnel with the Office of Civil Defense-7. (https://bit.ly/3vnuOAh)
As he reflected on the powerful earthquake that shook Cebu and Bohol in 2013, the city mayor conveyed his sympathies with the earthquake’s victims.
In terms of financial aid, the city still needs to assess its capacity given that it is still recuperating from the devastation of Typhoon Odette in December 2021.
