“This Account Has Been Suspended” ang makikita hanggang ngayon isinusulat ang balitang ito sa pagbisita sa website ng Philippine Coast Guard na www.coastguard.gov.ph
MANILA, Philippines – Hindi pa rin ma-access hanggang ngayon ang website ng Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) na iniulat na-hack ng hindi pa matukoy na grupo.
Ayon kay PCG Spokesman Commander Armand Balilo, weekend ng ma-infiltrate ng hackers ang www.coastguard.gov.ph.
“Last week nung nagkaroon ng insidente dito sa Balintang Channel bigla na lang din nawala yung website ng Philippine Coast Guard and prior to that we received some emails na meron nagki-criticize na dun sa nangyari at pagdating ng hapon nawala na talaga yung website niya.”
Dagdag pa ni Balilo, “hanggang ngayon ay tina-try namin na ma-workout na mai-up at bring it up to normal operation.”
Ayon sa PCG, wala namang masyadong malaking epekto kung mananatiling down ang kanilang website pero kailangan pa rin ito bilang information provider.
Aniya, sinisikap nilang bago mag-weekend ay maibalik na sa normal status ang website.

MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine Coast Guard’s (PCG) BRP Gabriela Silang is off to Surigao today (February 24) to deliver relief supplies to families in the aftermath of tropical depression Auring.
On Tuesday (February 23), PCG personnel loaded boxes of food packs, tents, sleeping kits, and bottles of alcohol aboard the BRP Gabriela Silang as well as BRP Malapascua in preparation for Wednesday’s relief supplies transport mission.
MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) on Friday said it is ready to extend humanitarian assistance and ensure maritime safety as it braces for the effects of severe tropical storm Auring.
PCG Commandant Admiral George Ursabia said he has directed all coast guard units in areas that are on the direct path of ‘Auring’ to intensify precautionary measures and conduct proactive disaster response operations.
PCG districts in Southern Luzon, Visayas, Northern Mindanao, and Davao region have also been placed on heightened alert to ensure completeness and preparedness of deployable response groups and quick response teams, he added.
“Coast Guard vessels, air assets, and land mobility vehicles from the National Headquarters and major PCG units are on standby for possible augmentation during evacuation and/or rescue operations,” Ursabia said.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Adminisration (PAGASA) has raised tropical cyclone wind signal number 1 in several areas in Mindanao as Auring intensified into severe tropical storm this morning.
PAGASA said Auring is forecast to make landfall over the eastern coast of CARAGA region on Sunday morning.
Ursabia said he has ordered the PCG Auxiliary to start initial preparations for the possible conduct of relief operations in coastal communities and residential areas that will be affected by the storm.
The storm was last spotted at 535 kilometers east southeast of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur, packing maximum sustained winds of 95 kilometers per hour near the center and gustiness of up to 115 kilometers per hour.
It is moving southwestward slowly and is seen to move generally westward or west-southwestward over the next 24 hours before turning northwestward on Saturday morning.
