MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) is on heightened alert with the expected increase in the number of sea travelers during the observance of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day. 

PCG spokesman Capt. Armand Balilo said PCG personnel were ordered to remain vigilant and implement measures to ensure the safety of sea travelers as Typhoon Rosita entered the country. 

“Our Northern Luzon district will be on alert. It was instructed to monitor... small passenger boats and fishing vessels... They would have to check on areas where PAGASA (Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration) would raise storm warning signals will be raised,” Balilo said.     

He said no vessels would be allowed to sail if the point of origin and intended route or destination are under storm warning signal. 

Meanwhile, Admiral Elson Hermogino, PCG commandant, ordered all PCG units to tighten security at ports and ferry terminals as they implement “Oplan Biyaheng Ayos.” 

Hermogino said PCG units should be ready to respond to any maritime incident.
