Coast Guard checks for oil spill as cargo vessels sink off Antique, Catanduanes


Philippine Coast Guard teams are monitoring possible oil spills from the sinking of two cargo vessels off Antique and Catanduanes over the weekend.
 
In Antique, the M/V Seaford 2 carrying 7,000 liters of diesel sank off San Jose in Antique province, radio dzBB reported early Monday.
 
The ship was also carrying 35,000 bags of cement at the time it sank, the report quoted the Philippine National Police as saying.
 
But the 18 crew members of the ship were reported safe, it added.
 
Initial investigation showed the ship took in water after its hull was breached by a hard object. The ship was heading for Culasi, Antique from Misamis.
