I am a resident of Rosario, Cavite. The main source of income here, in our place is fishing, since our town is surrounded by sea.
This news about the Rosario Cavite oil spill is very alarming to all of us. According to the authorities, the said oil spill was discovered and found from a leakage from a pipeline under the sea.
As of this writing, Philippine Coast Guard, along with local authorities are still on their move to prevent the oil spill from spreading. The said underwater pipeline is owned by Petron Corporation. Mayor Nonong Ricafrente already suspended the company's license to operate until they resolve their own mess.
Petron Corporation personnel's said that the said leakage started when Typhoon Basyang landed the area. The said company already placed numerous oil spill boom and oil dispersal at the affected area to prevent it from spreading.
I think , the community, local authorities and concerned citizens as well should really focus their eyes and attention at this oil spill. Once and for all, this oil spill must stop!. We don't want this to become the Asian version of BP Oil spill.
