Earthquake Aftershock in Iloilo and Guimaras Island
The Iloilo City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council chaired by Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog convened the council around 2 o’clock Monday to talk about measures to avoid any damage in case of aftershocks, according to Engr. Jo Papa, Iloilo City Civil Defense Deputized Coordinator and officer-in-charge of the Iloilo City Crisis Management Office.
In addition, the mayor also urged the suspension of classes at all levels and early closure of malls, banks and other commercial establishments here.
The City Health Office (CHO) was likewise alerted together with the City Social Welfare Development Office (CSWDO) and Department of Education (DepEd)–Iloilo City should there be evacuations.
Also Mabilog got commitment from the Panay Energy Development Corporation (PEDC) that power supply will return to normal within the day.
Earlier, the PEDC announced that the failure was due to a turbine trip as a result of the quake and the Panay Power Corporation (PPC) was temporarily dispatched to augment the city’s power requirement.
The City Engineer’s Office (CEO) as well as the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) are also conducting inspection to determine reported damages in several establishments in the city.
On the other hand, Guimaras Governor Felipe Hilan Nava has instructed the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Management Center (PDRRMC) to be vigilant and continuously seek update from Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction Management Councils (MDRRMCs) particularly those situated in coastal areas.
Teresita Siason, Guimaras PDRRMC coordinator, said that they are in close coordination with the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) and the Philippine Coast Guard.
