PIA Press Release

NDCC warns fisherfolk against going out to sea

by Rutchie Cabahug-Aguhob

Cagayan de Oro City (6 August) -- Strong to gale force wind is expected to affect the Western Seaboard of Southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

Thus, fishing boats and other small sea-crafts are advised not to go out into the sea while larger vessels are alerted against big waves.

This advise came from the National Disaster Coordinating Council (NDCC) per its advisory dated Aug. 6, 2010, to all chairmen of the Regional and Provincial DCC?s to undertake precautionary measures and inform the public of the situation.

Of particular concern are the areas of the National Capital Region, Regions IVA - Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon (CALABARZON), Region IVB - Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan (MIMAROPA), Region V - Bicol, and all the regions in the Visayas and Mindanao.

In his memorandum to all the Office of Civil Defense Regional Centers (OCDRC), Benito T. Ramos, NDCC Executive Officer and OCD Administrator, said the public and the local DCC?s in the concerned areas are advised to take appropriate actions to disseminate this information to include the local media and community radio stations and emphasize proactive actions to aim for zero casualties.

Ramos said these areas will experience cloudy skies with scattered to widespread rain showers and thunderstorms with a wind force of 55-63 kilometers per hour or 30-34 knots while the sea condition will be rough to very rough with waves from 3.7-4.5 meters high.

With these developments, residents in low-lying areas, such as, river banks, creeks and coastal areas, slopes, cliffs and foothills and mountainous areas are alerted against flashfloods and landslides while the fisherfolk are advised against going into municipal waters, Ramos added. (PIA 10) [top]
