MANILA - The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has asked occupants of the Emilio Aguinaldo College (EAC) building to vacate the facility after it sustained damage from a strong tremor that struck Manila late Friday afternoon.

Public Works Secretary Mark Villar said they have asked school officials not to utilize the building anymore. 

DPWH personnel have also cordoned off a section of UN Avenue for security.

Photos circulating online showed that the school was left tilting on an adjacent structure in the wake of the 6.1-magnitude earthquake.
