After the earthquake, the San Roque Dam in Pangasinan sustains minor damage.

Pangasinenses have been informed by the San Roque Power Corporation (SRPC) management that the San Roque dam was unharmed by Wednesday’s magnitude 7 earthquake.

Tommy Valdez, vice president for corporate affairs of SRPC, claimed in a letter to Pangasinan Governor Ramon Guico III that the building is still solid and durable despite the earthquake.

“Nais po nating ipaalam sa lahat na ang ating San Roque Dam ay nananatiling matatag,” the speaker said. We would want to let everyone know that the San Roque Dam is still in good condition. Based on a visual assessment, there was nothing to concern ourselves with. According to our visual investigation, there wasn’t any damage at all, he said.

He stated that the entire structure is being monitored and inspected by the SRPC and the Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office of this municipality.

“We should not worry or be concerned and be cautious and monitor any potential aftershocks,” Valdez added. “Huwag po tayong mag-alala o mabahala at manatiling maingat at makiramdam sa mga pagyanig na maari pang Mangyari.”

No significant damage to Pangasinan’s roads, bridges, or other infrastructure has been reported, according to the Department of Public Works and Highways’ Ilocos regional office.

The Hector Mendoza Bridge in Alcala Town has sustained damage to its transverse expansion joint, according to its report, but it is still available to traffic. All other roads and bridges are also passable.

According to Ron Castillo, head of the emergency operations center for the Pangasinan Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office, there have been no reported fatalities and just minor infrastructure damages in the province.

In an interview, he stated that the provincial capitol building had “very, very little few cracks, but it is minor, and aside from that, there were no other recorded damages.”
