Philippines’ Clark International Airport has closed temporarily following a strong 6.1 magnitude earthquake that struck the main island of Luzon the night of April 22.

Part of the departure hall’s roof has collapsed, injuring seven, and there are cracks in the control tower.

All airlines have halted operations to and from the airport, with over 100,000 passengers affected. Flag-carrier Philippines Airlines cancelled about 23 flights on April 23. Passengers were transported to the capital’s Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

Philippines Transport Secretary Arthur Tugade told local reporters that the airport will open on “Wednesday at the earliest or Thursday at the latest”, after authorities assessthe structural integrity of the terminal.

There was no visible damage to the new Terminal 2 construction, with inspections completed before nightfall.
