Abu rushes home to quake-hit Batangas

Apr 9, 2017 @ 15:54

Deputy Speaker Raneo Abu of the 2nd district of Batangas has every reason to be home right now.

This, after the towns of Tingloy and Mabini were struck by successive strong earthquakes Saturday, April 8.

“District namin pareho ang epicenters ng magkasunod na lindol, Tingloy and the latest, Mabini,” Abu said in a statement sent to House of Representatives (HOR) reporters.

“Together with DPWH Dist 2, Batangas, we are assessing the damage to public [infrastructure],” the politiko said.

A 5.7-magnitude earthquake hit the province at 3:08 p.m. Saturday, followed by 5.9-magnitude temblor just a minute later.

The twin quakes resulted to damaged roads and infrastructure, including resorts, churches and hospitals around the province.
