Balangay swept to open sea

By: Arturo Valdez

The Balangay was swept by raging flood waters into open sea at 9 pm last night when Maragondon dam was opened without notice and flooded  Ternate river. The Balangay was swamped by big waves and strong currents at the mouth of the river. We were forced to sail at 12 midnight back to Sangley Naval Base early this morning. Were still making damage assessment, but the Balangay and crew appear okay and high spirit. The Balangay is going through a real test, but passed with flying colors!
