Both Ormoc and Kananga have been declared under a state of calamity.

A shallow magnitude 6.5 natural disaster hit Leyte province Thursday afternoon, July 6, which killed two people and injured more than a hundred.

The National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) noted that the energy situation should be addressed as soon as possible.

Mr. Gomez stressed their need for clean, potable water, particularly for evacuees whose homes have been damaged.

Another magnitude 5.4 quake shook Leyte and nearby provinces on Monday morning.

A quake hit Ormoc city at 9.41 a.m. (0141 GMT) on Monday, which was said to be an aftershock of the 6.5-magnitude tremor that jolted the province on Thursday and killed at least two people.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology has recorded over 500 aftershocks since Thursday.

The NDRRMC has also recorded at least 2 deaths and 200 injuries due to the quake.
