Coast guard in Palawan suspends island tours in Coron & El Nido towns


PUERTO PRINCESA CITY: The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG)-Palawan District suspended temporarily all island tours in the towns of El Nido and Coron due to torrential rains, strong winds, and waves brought about by typhoon “Hanna.”
Lt. Jay Tarriela, spokesperson of the PCG in Palawan, said island tours in El Nido and Coron are suspended temporarily due to “Hanna” as well as motorboat travels in the town of Roxas – all in the northern part of the province.
He said they issued the ban to keep fishermen safe from any effects of what has been dubbed as the strongest typhoon of 2015.
The temporary ban came following the gale warning ordered by the state weather bureau Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).
The PCG official said strong winds and waves, and torrential rains have been recorded in these towns since “Hanna” entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR). PNA
