More than 100 homes have been damaged – 16 totally and 91 partially – while four people were injured, following a strong and shallow M5.9 earthquake in Mindanao, Philippines, on November 18, 2019.

According to a report by the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council on November 19, seven more infrastructures were severely damaged, including a health center, a public terminal, a city hall, and some schools.

One of the injured victims sustained a head injury, one lost consciousness, and two suffered from severe anxiety. The victims were referred to the nearest hospital for further treatment.

Local newscast One Mindanao posted images of the quake's aftermath, showing ravaged homes, collapsed walls, and torn roofs.

The agency posted the initial figures of affected households: 56 in Barangay Sibonga, 14 in Barangay Salvacion, 11 in Barangay Malinao, seven in Barangay Husayan, seven in Barangay Kibogtok, and five in Barangay Baroy.

Seven municipalities have declared a suspension of classes on November 19 while damage assessments are ongoing.

On November 19, the Association of Medical Doctors of Asia (AMDA) Headquarters said they will be sending its second coordinator from Japan for the ongoing relief work being conducted in quake-stricken parts of Mindanao.

The coordinator will be joining aid work scheduled from the 22nd in four districts of Makilala, Cotabato, in response to the series of quakes that shook the area since October.

AMDA has dispatched its first batch of relief team to Cotabato along with its counterparts, AMDA Philippines and Women in National Development Security (WiNDS).
