So you think you're too cool for the quake drill?
The second #MMShakeDrill took place earlier today and as expected, most people and offices didn't even care to participate and went on with whatever they were doing.
This year, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority took the proceedings up a notch and carried out simulated earthquake scenarios in four different sectors of the metro. The various rescue drills, among other earthquake-related mishaps, immersed the emergency corps into (almost) actual disaster scenarios and equipped them with everything they need in case "The Big One" hits.
Although apparently, those weren't the only effect this dry run had on us. If you're already thinking of skipping the next drill, take a gander at these hyperrealistic photos:
Some images look straight out of a disaster movie
The idea of something as big as this happening in real life leaves us shaking in our boots
Good thing the authorities concerned seemed pretty well-versed in what they're supposed to do in these situations
From evacuating to nursing victims, medical personnel, police officers and other emergency staff looked ready, willing, and able
All that's left is the full compliance of Filipinos
