Update on UPโ€™s assistance to earthquake-hit communities in Mindanao

A team of engineers from the UP College of Engineering (UP-CoE) further assured the safety of people gravely affected by the recent Mindanao earthquakes by conducting structural assessment of vital buildings in North Cotabato Province and the hard-hit Municipality of Makilala.

The University of the Philippines is committed in sending its group of geology experts from the UP Resilience Institute today to conduct a needs assessment in light of the Mindanao earthquakes last October 29 and 31 with magnitudes 6.6 and 6.5, respectively.ย 

Experts from the UP Resilience Institute and UP Mindanao Earthquake Task Force have been sent to visit the hard-hit barangays of Makilala, Cotabato for geological assessment in light of the Mindanao earthquakes last October 29 and 31. This is in response to Acting Vice-Governor Shirlyn D. Macasarte-Villanuevaโ€™s request to UP for assistance on geological surveys, structural damage assessment, and psychosocial support for trauma victims.

UP experts and scientists who have done research, or are currently involved in the Manila Bay Rehabilitation project, presented their studies at #ThatsMyBay, a forum on UPโ€™s initiatives in keeping Manila Bay alive organized by the Padayon Public Service Office.
