The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) Caticlan is now geared up for the onset of the habagat season this June.

According to PCG Station Commandant Lt. Senior Grade Jimmy Oliver Vingo, they have already coordinated with other departments  about the transfer of boat schedules to Tabon and Tambisaan Ports during Habagat.

Vingo also said that he is in favor if an ordinance or resolution that will keep boat trips at Tabon and Tambisaan ports during the period will be implemented.

They would welcome the said ordinance, if pushed through, for the sake of passengers going in and out of Boracay, Vingno added.

The PCG is expected to hold a meeting with the Jetty Port Administration, as well as boat owners and or operators in line with the southwest monsoon.

At the moment, the coast guard continuously monitors the weather that may affect smaller sea vessels.
