Statement of Sen. JV Ejercito on the magnitude 6.1 earthquake that hit Luzon

Mag-ingat po ang lahat. Siguraduhin natin ang kaligtasan ng ating mga mahal sa buhay. Manatili tayong kalmado at sundin natin ang mga panuntunan sa mga panahon ng sakuna.

In the wake of the strong earthquake that hit Luzon, I urge both national and local government authorities to immediately conduct comprehensive inspections of all buildings and vital infrastructure in order to ensure that they are safe.

Let us pray for the rescue of those trapped in the collapsed building in Pampanga and hope that no more casualties will be reported. I ask the government to provide all possible support to those adversely affected by the quake.

After the shock of this earthquake, let us work to strengthen disaster preparedness and resilience of our communities. Let us empower our local governments so they can respond effectively to disasters.
