CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY: Coast Guard authorities here has ordered the suspension of operations of all commercial vessels docked in the Macabalan Port area here starting Thursday.
Lt. Cmdr. Eleazar Dalnai said on Thursday morning that the suspension of travel of all kinds of commercial vessels came as the government’s weathermen raised signal no. 1 in Misamis Oriental Thursday morning.
He said that the suspension order also includes all kinds of vessels (big and small) including fishing boats in the coastal areas of Misamis Oriental.
Dalnai said the Coast Guard automatically suspends all sea travel once storm signal no. 1 is raised since it would be dangerous for vessels to wade through the seas anymore.
He said they also conducted patrols along the province coastal areas on Wednesday advising fishing boats to stay ashore as typhoon Yolanda approaches. PNA
