Event

Clark International Airport (CRK) in Pampanga province (Central Luzon region) will partially reopen on Wednesday, April 24, at 16:00 (local time) following a strong earthquake in the region on Monday, April 22, according to airport authorities. Damage to the airport's old terminal has been largely repaired or removed and the runway and air traffic control tower were undamaged in the quake. Cargo flights resumed on Tuesday, April 23, and the first passenger flight is scheduled to depart on Wednesday at 19:40. Many flights have already been canceled by their airlines and further cancelations, delays, and crowded flights are expected in the coming hours and days.

Authorities raised the death toll from Monday's earthquake to 16 on Wednesday. At least 81 people were injured and 14 more remain missing, according to the Office of Civil Defense. Many of those killed were in a Porac (Pampanga province) supermarket that collapsed. Damage to infrastructure and associated road closures and transportation disruptions are likely to persist in the coming days. Further aftershocks remain possible.
