Heartbreaking Photo Of Grieving Parents after Luzon Earthquake
LUZON EARTHQUAKE – The heartbreaking photo of grieving parents after the earthquake in Luzon went viral.
The earthquake that happened on April 22 in Luzon could possibly be the strongest earthquake for this year.
Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) recorded 405 aftershocks following the 6.1 magnitude earthquake yesterday.
In a previous article, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) confirmed that the powerful earthquake ‘killed’ 7 people and numerous people injured.
NDRRMC spokesperson Edgar Posadas stated that there are 24 missing after the quake. Those people were probably stuck inside the Chuzon Supermarket in Porac, Pampanga.
Pampanga is among the most affected places in Luzon. The Chuzon supermarket collapsed due to the strong shock.
Posadas and a team of rescuers directed their focus on the destroyed supermarket.
Unfortunately, a family was reportedly victimized by the powerful earthquake.
Based on a report from CNN, a man named Jason Dela Cruz survived the collapse, however, he lost his wife Manilyn and 2 children named Jacob (6) and Haylee (1).
Jason calls for an investigation into the incident. The man questioned why the supermarket is the only ones affected by the earthquake.
According to the report, Public Works Secretary Mark Villar ordered to investigate the infrastructure of all the branches of the Chuzon grocery store.
