Abra was the epicenter of a 7.3-magnitude earthquake that occurred earlier at 8:43 AM. This strong earthquake shocked many of my beloved Abreños and caused damages to many households and establishments. This earthquake was also felt in various parts of Luzon and activated preemptive measures in many places.
I urge everyone to stay alert and to prioritize safety in light of the possibilities of aftershocks that might be felt after that strong earthquake. We are monitoring the situation on the ground and gathering information on the extent of the damage to the Province. My office is also actively coordinating with proper authorities on what can be done to assist families and communities that were severely affected by this earthquake.
More importantly, please join us in praying for Abra and the continuous safety of our beloved Abreños.
