PNoy’s sisters help
earthquake hit areas


Presidential-sister Pinky Aquino Abellada yesterday called for prayers for the residents of earthquake hit areas in Negros Oriental where continuing aftershocks are still causing damage.

“Up to now, damage is still happening, let us pray for our brothers in Guihulngan, La Libertad, Jimalalud and areas near the epicenter (of the magnitude 6.9 earthquake),” said Abellada, who was in Negros Occidental for the inauguration of classrooms.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology recorded 13 new aftershocks yesterday in Negros Oriental ranging from magnitude 1.9 to 4.6 with La Libertad, Mabinay Tayasan, Ayungon, Guihulngan, Jimalalud and Canlaon City as their epicenters.moremoremore
