“The Palace expresses its sincerest condolences to the families, relatives and friends of the people who died at sea following the capsizing of three vessels due to strong waves produced by a squall while in transit from Iloilo City to Guimaras.

We note that there is no final death toll yet as our maritime agents continue to do their best in conducting search and rescue operations in the naval areas affected by the bad weather.

The Office of the President directs all concerned departments and agencies, including the Philippine Coast Guard, the Maritime Industry Authority and the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, to provide immediate assistance to the victims of this tragedy and refine their coordination efforts in safeguarding the security of the public especially during this rainy season.”
