                          immediately after the 7.2 earthquake

After the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that jolted Lapu-Lapu City and the rest of Central Visayas on October 15 at around 8:30am, I ordered the office of the city engineer in coordination with the Bureau of Fire Protection, Disaster Action Center and the City Administrator's Office
to conduct inspections on tourism establishments like hotels, resorts and all public structures.

The result of the first day and succeeding days of inspection showed that our city has not sustained any serious damage from the earthquake.

It is business as usual here in our city including all the hotels and resorts and other tourism activities.

Airport and land transportation operations are normal.

Sea activities such as marine sports, island hopping are also normal.

There is normal supply of power and water in the city.

I would like to assure our people that Lapu-Lapu City is business as usual.

To our incoming tourists and guests we are ready and happy to serve you anytime.

As I ordered the release of this advisory, around 70 mayors of the League of Cities of the Philippines, including myself and local chief executives from Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam and Canada are here in our city, particularly in Movenpick Resort and Spa Cebu for a two-day meeting at the lower ground floor of their building since yesterday, a day after the earthquake.
