local.seafdecaqd.extractApart from a two-kilometer oil sheen, droplets of bunker oil the size of a five-peso coin from the sunken cargo ship M/V Sportivo have reached the shorelines of at least two villages in Guimaras province, the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) said yesterday. Commodore Athelo Ybanez, PCG Western Visayas District commander, said the bunker oil droplets had been observed at the shorelines of Barangays Hoskyn and Rizal as of noon yesterday. Ybanez said they were able to visit Barangay Hoskyn last Tuesday and saw that only portions of the village were affected. “There were just spots,” he said. Ybanez, however, said the damage caused by the oil droplets on the shorelines of the two Guimaras villages was only minimal because of the pro-active response of the residents.en
