Photos of Vigan City's Roads, Buildings, and More After the Magnitude 7.3 Earthquake
The aftermath of today’s magnitude 7.3 earthquake is horrifying. After seeing the landslides around Baguio City, we’ve now come across photos of all the destruction in Vigan City. The streets of Vigan—the provincial capital of Ilocos Sur and also a UNESCO World Heritage Site—were found filled with rocks and all kinds of debris when the dust finally settled. Netizen Kervin King’s photos on Facebook clearly show what the city looks like after this morning’s natural disaster.
Several vehicles were found severely damaged by the tremors. A Hyundai Starex was also spotted crushed at its rear, while a nearly unrecognizable Mitsubishi Montero Sport was found underneath the rubble. Various historical structures such as the Vigan Cathedral and the Bantay Bell Tower were also damaged by the tremors, and several roads around the city appear to be impassable. It’s basically a huge, huge mess. You can check out all the photos below. Stay safe out there, everyone.
