Chinese-registered dredger runs aground off Zambales – PCG

Robie de Guzman   •   June 18, 2020

MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) on Thursday said it has deployed a response team to conduct a survey and inspection operations on a dredger that ran aground off the coast of Botolan, Zambales.

The PCG said the Chinese-registered dredger, MV Zhong Hai 69 Alfa, was grounded last Sunday, June 14 approximately 200 meters off Barangay Bangan.

The survey and inspection conducted by the PCG response team showed that the vessel’s engine room and its compartments have been flooded with seawater.

The team, however, assured there are no signs of oil leaking from the grounded dredger.

The PCG-Zambales said the operator of the ship, Z2K Resources Inc., has pledged to procure additional bilge pumps to be used in the dewatering of the flooded vessel.

PCG Commandant Vice-Admiral George Ursabia Jr. assured that the salvage of the grounded dredger will be strictly supervised by the PCG and that there will be continuous monitoring of the situation.

“The PCG remains on top of the situation. We do not want to add another burden to the current crisis we are facing. Most of all, we do not want the local residents in the area to bear the negative consequences of this situation, especially with the possible harm it can cause to the local marine environment,” Ursabia said.

The PCG is now working round-the-clock to supervise the salvaging of the dredger, he added.

The Office of Civil Defense (OCD) and the Batangas Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (PDRRMO) will be conducting a search for a 26-year-old man who had gone missing following the Taal Volcano eruption.

This, after a mother sought the help of the UNTV News and Rescue team to find her son whom they last saw amid the confusion brought about by the Taal volcano eruption.

Marilyn Deteral said she and her husband, together with their other children left their house in Barangay Alas-as in San Nicolas, Batangas when the volcano erupted.

Alas-as is one of the barangays located at the Taal Volcano Island.

Marlon, her son, was not with them at that time they evacuated and was neither at the evacuation center they were sent to.

A neighbor told them that Marlon went back home to look for them. He has not gone back to the evacuation center.

It is now three weeks since Marilyn reported her missing child but until now, the family has not received any update.

She said her family has already accepted her son’s fate.

“Sana po matulungan niyo po ako na mahukay po ang aking (anak) doon sa Alas-as po na hanggang ngayon po ay di pa po nahuhukay. Siguro po nadaganan po siya sa bahay namin dahil po bumalik siya dun dahil tiningnan po kami, ay wala na po kami doon,” Marilyn said. — (from the report of Vincent Arboleda) /mbmf

13 missing after boat sinks near Bajo de Masinloc; search ops underway – PCG

Robie de Guzman   •   November 13, 2019

MANILA, Philippines – Around 13 Filipino fishermen went missing after their boat sank near Bajo de Masinloc in Zambales last week, the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) said on Wednesday.

In a statement, the PCG said it is currently conducting operations to search for the missing fishermen of “FFB Three Sister.”

The agency said the fishing vessel sank on Nov. 7 at around 3 a.m. as it was sailing from Recto (also called Reed) Bank going to Barangay Sisiman in Mariveles, Bataan.

Strong winds and huge waves brought about by Tropical Cyclone ‘Quiel’ allegedly caused the boat to sink.

A few days after the incident, a fisherman named Angelito Epetito Jr. was rescued after he was found floating using a container along Bajo de Masinloc.

The PCG said the boat mishap was only reported to its station in Bataan through a radio communication on Nov. 11, adding that a team was immediately deployed after it received the information.

The rescued fisherman said he got separated from his companions and was unable to regroup with them.

He said he remained afloat for four days until rescue came.

The PCG said it has dispatched three of its floating assets – the BRP Tubbataha, BRP Capones and the BRP Boracay – to search and save the lives of the missing fishers.

It added that it is also set to coordinate with the Chinese Coast Guard to seek information on the possible whereabouts of the 13 missing fishermen.
