Residents of the condominiums have voluntarily vacated their units after receipt of Notice To Vacate from the Davao City Office of the Building Official.”
Duterte-Carpio ordered an inspection on all buildings in the city following the collapse of Himeki building of the Ecoland Residences 4000 complex, during the October 31 earthquake.
The Davao City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office report stated the following findings:

The Davao City Legal Office has been ordered to probe on the actions of the City Engineer’s Office, Office of the City Building Official, and the Building Administrator’s Office of Ecoland Residences 4000 in relation to the collapse of the Himeji building.
There is an ongoing joint ground assessment by CDRRMO, MGB XI, DENR, and local officials of landslide prone barangays in Davao City. Initial results of the assessment flagged Juario Village in Maa as a “danger zone” and the residents of the village have been advised to evacuate ASAP because of threats of imminent landslide.
At least one person was arrested for disobedience to a lawful order in relation to the operations at Ecoland 4000.
