THE Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) has lifted the suspension of sea voyages from Zamboanga City to the nearby provinces, as well as, to the Visayas as the sea condition has improved after Typhoon Glenda hit several parts of the country.
Zamboanga Coast Guard Station commander Lieutenant Senior Grade Jomark Angue said they have lifted the suspension of voyages effective 7 a.m. Wednesday.
"As the weather is continuously improving and the sea condition is already moderate and navigable, we are now lifting the suspension of voyage from the port of Zamboanga going to Visayas area, Basilan, Sulu and Tawi-Tawi effective 7 a.m. today," Angue said.
Angue has ordered the suspension of boat trips on Tuesday due to rough seas although Zamboanga City and Western Mindanao in general were not directly hit by the typhoon.
He said the suspension of boat trips is a proactive measure to prevent accident at sea.
