One year after: Pre-restoration almost done for Bohol, Cebu churches
Rappler, 15 October 2014

Whatever happened to the historic churches, houses and landmarks damaged by the 7.2-magnitude earthquake that hit Bohol and Cebu exactly a year ago?

Most of the iconic structures assigned to the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP), at least, are 60 to 80% into the pre-restoration stage.

In a report given exclusively to Rappler, the NHCP detailed the status of all 26 historic structures put under its wing. Ten of these structures are in Bohol while 16 are in Cebu.

At least 15 of the structures have completed 5 or 6 out of the 9 steps in the pre-restoration stage.
