Big waves, poor visibility hamper crane ship's work to salvage USS Guardian
February 20, 2013 12:22pm

Big waves and poor visibility are hounding the crew of a crane ship tasked to help in the salvage operation for the grounded US minesweeper USS Guardian, the Philippine Coast Guard said.

Coast Guard spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Armand Balilo said the JASCON 25 is still near Tubbataha Reef but is encountering big waves and strong winds, radio dzBB's Carlo Mateo reported.

The report quoted Balilo as saying the continued bad weather conditions have so far prevented the ship's crew from pushing through with salvage work.

Earlier Wednesday, Task Force Tubbataha head and Coast Guard Palawan commander Commodore Enrico Evangelista said they may have to postpone salvage work due to bad weather.
