SAN FERNANDO CITY, Pampanga — Only the second district of Pampanga would be placed under the state of calamity and not the whole province as earlier declared, Gov. Lilia Pineda said Tuesday.

“Ang napag-usapan ng mga lawyer natin, legal counsel, second district lang kasing wala kasing report na mga damages ang mga third, fourth, and first district,” Pineda told reporters here.


The Pampanga Provincial Legislative Board earlier Tuesday placed the entire Pampanga under state of calamity after a magnitude 6.1 quake hit the province and parts of Luzon late Monday afternoon. /je
