The 1990 Luzon Earthquake damaged Dagupan massively. Buildings sunk & tilted. Number of schools, houses & cinemas were destroyed. There were also a lot of casualties and injuries.
Walking down the streets of Dagupan today made me wonder what was it like living before the earthquake occured and damaged the city. I had questions in mind that wanted to find answers. “Was it always like this?” or “What was it like experiencing the earthquake?”.
I’ve heard of stories of people who experienced the earthquake. Most of them were at school during that time and some were at cinema houses, injured, because of stampede.
This month, the city conducts an earthquake drill which is done annually. I always hope & pray that we never get to experience such a massive destruction.
