TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol, Oct. 19 (PIA)--President Benigno Aquino III in his recent visit to Bohol urged Boholanos to report immediately to authorities if they see and notice cracks on structures in their areas after the October 15 earthquake that shook not only the entire province but Central Visayas as well.

“Ipaalam agad ninyo sa inyong LGU at patingnan kung may duda kayo o kung may mapansin kayong cracks. Ituro ninyo sa ating mga imbestigador,” Aquino said during his speech and meeting with the local government and other agencies recently.

Aquino pointed out that it is necessary to report to the experts any cracks or any discrepancies on buildings and structures so the concerned government agency can attend to these problems.

The President instructed the Department of Public Work and Highways (DPWH) to coordinate with the Provincial Engineering Office to ensure that all structures and are checked and monitored because strong aftershocks are still felt in areas that the quake hit.
The latest Building Code is series 2010 that details the rules and guidelines in putting up buildings and other structures that will withstand a 7.2 magnitude earthquake, Aquino said.

He added that the old structures are the problem. (PIA-Bohol/ecb)
