Lawmen allay fear of oil spill from foreign vessel stranded in Ilocos Norte beach

By Freddie G. Lazaro

Currimao, Ilocos Norte (September 14) -- Joint operatives from the Philippine Coast Guard and the Philippine National Police (PNP) allayed the fear of local residents about the possible oil spill from a stranded foreign yacht in the rocky shore of Barangay Pangil here.

This was after the police and coastguard had siphoned off crude oil from the stranded MV Ocean Star vessel for documentation purposes and that the recovered fuel is now in the possession of the authorities.

The joint police and coastguards earlier discovered at least 22 empty containers, various national flags, three beds and personal belongings inside the a stranded yacht.

Lieutenant Senior Grade Hector Rafin, head of the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) Ilocos Norte Station, said the owner of the stranded yacht is still nowhere to be found and remained unidentified.

The local coast guard station is closely coordinating with PCG headquarters in Manila as well as the local residents for the identification of the ship's owner.

The vessel was first reported at about 2:00 a.m Thursday in the rocky shored of Barangay Pangil.

It was reported that the yacht's front and rear sides were damaged and the same was believed to have engine trouble. (PIA Ilocos Sur) [top]
