CLARK, Pampanga -- The Clark Development Corporation (CDC) and the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) have reported zero casualties in Clark, as technical teams conduct a continuing assessment of the situation due to the 6.1-magnitude earthquake that badly hit Pampanga and other parts of Central Luzon on Monday afternoon.

CDC has reported that at least 90 percent of power supply has been restored following the strong earthquake. Also, the CDC Health and Sanitation Division (HSD) reported that it has not received any report of casualties inside Clark.

CDC has also designated temporary shelters for travelers and tourists, who might be affected by the closure of operations of Clark International Airport (CRK) and may not be able to afford to stay in hotels.

These include the Training Center at HSD, the pavilion at Bicentennial Park, the Philippine Air Force Gym, and the Clark Parade Grounds. Water and food are also being provided for these shelters.

The assessment of structures in Clark will continue overnight.

The Department of Transportation (DOTr) and the Clark International Airport Corporation (CIAC) earlier announced that the Clark International Airport will be closed and flights will be suspended for 24 hours beginning 7:40 p.m. Monday to further check on the integrity of the its terminal structure and facilities. No damage was found on the airport’s runway and taxiways.

Further, the BCDA reported that there has been no damage at the new Clark International Airport New Terminal Building being built, as well as facilities at the New Clark City Phase 1 -- which includes the government center and the sports stadium, the aquatics center, athletes’ dormitory which are being readied for the SEA Games this November.

Assessment of all buildings, structures and facilities in Clark will be done in the next 12 to 24 hours.
