2 days after the Abra earthquake, over 1K aftershocks were recorded.

According to data released on Friday by the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs), more than 1,000 aftershocks were registered two days after a magnitude 7 earthquake jolted Abra and other areas of Luzon.

26 of the 1,071 aftershocks that were recorded were felt, and 263 were plotted or found. These aftershocks had magnitudes ranging from 1.5 to 5.

The severe earthquake, which was produced by movement along the Abra River Fault, would produce a lot of aftershocks in the first two to three days, according to Phivolcs Director Renato Solidum Jr.

The quantity would steadily drop.

Solidum encouraged the general population to examine the damaged buildings, homes, and infrastructure before avoiding staying there for the time being.

People who live in cities, where there are more people, investments, and infrastructures, should be more ready, he said.

The public must increase their level of preparedness. “Kailangan nating pag-igtingan ang ating kahandaan nito, pero huwag nating kalimutan iyong malalakas na paglindol, in less than one minute ay pwedeng makasira ng ating mga gusali, mga bahay, imprastraktura at Keep in mind that powerful earthquakes, for example, have the power to completely demolish an entire city in less than a minute.

The severe earthquake in the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) and the Ilocos Region affected 79,260 people in 246 villages, according to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council.

There were also 1,583 homes in the CAR and Ilocos Region that were impacted by the earthquake. 48 of these were labeled as “completely damaged,” and 1,535 were classified as “somewhat damaged.”

There were also reports of significant harm to cultural and heritage assets.
