"Totally burned" Manila Central Post Office

According to a report by CNN Philippines, the historic Manila Central Post Office building was hit by fire late Sunday evening.

Totally burned po lahat ang ating structure natin. Hundred percent ito...Talagang nakakalungkot dahil may kalumaan ito. Isa ito sa kasaysayan natin, itong building. Pero talagang 'di namin kinaya. Kailangan talaga ito ma-preserve na ‘yung structure na lang niya, BFP-NCR Director Chief Superintendent Nahum Tarroza said.

The fire started in the post office’s basement past 11 PM. on Sunday and was only declared under control past 7 AM the following day.

While some expressed worry about the historic building being damaged, "National ID" also trended on Twitter as netizens who have not yet received their IDs worry they may never do so anymore.

Citing Philippine Statistics Authority Usec. and National Statistician Dennis Mapa, ABS-CBN News reported that some national IDs for delivery in the City of Manila were affected.

The number of affected IDs is still being determined.

National IDs for delivery are at the PHLPost Central Mail Exchange Center (CMEC) in Pasay City and were unaffected, Mapa noted.

We assure the public that the PhilIDs affected by the fire shall be replaced by the PSA at no additional cost to concerned registered persons, following protocols set by the PSA for such scenarios, Mapa said.

What do you think about this?
