MANILA, Philippines — The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council on Wednesday declared no fish, no fly, no sail in parts of Northern Luzon as North Korea launched its highly-criticized long-range rocket.

NDRRMC Executive Director Benito Ramos advised the public to avoid the exclusion zone of 200 nautical miles east of Luzon.

“Ang mga mangingisda umalis sa tapat ng Sta. Ana, Cagayan to Polilio Island. Dyan babagsak ang debris,” Ramos said.

The rocket was launched at 9:49a.m Korean time (8:49 a.m. Philippine  time)

“They were not advised of the launch, and only found out about it through the South Korea Defense Armed Forces Attache,” he said.

“Walang abiso na nagpalipad. Dapat kahapon nagbigay ng abiso,”  Ramos added.

The rocket will run 7 miles per second and will take 20 minutes to reach the Philippine area of responsibility.

Ramos said  the country does not have the capability to locate the location of the rocket.

As of latest, Ramos quoted a TV news report that the debris fell 310 kilometers east of Northern Luzon.

    Pinoy should fire Benito Ramos for incompetence in ordering a no fish, no fly, no sail in parts of Northern Luzon after the the test.  It’s done.  You are late.  Even your reaction to the tragedy in Mindanao needs a lot of explaining.  He was asked why the figures of the media do not tally with the governments casualty figure.  His response was because we don’t have their names yet.  Ridiculous!  Why is he downplaying the disaster?   He is so old school. He needs to go.

    “Walang abiso na nagpalipad. Dapat kahapon nagbigay ng abiso,” Ramos added.

    hindi naka porma si gen. problem ng disaster

    nagbawal pa ng pangingisda
    e tapos na

    wala na naman makain
    ang mahihirap na mangingisda
    dahil kay gen. problem

    palitan na ito
    pinagtatawanan lang tayo ng intsik switik

    The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council on Wednesday declared no fish, no fly, no sail in parts of Northern Luzon as North Korea launched its highly-criticized long-range rocket. Pambihira naman OO, huli na boy, nakapagpalipad na sila at lumanding na sa tubig ang ROCKET. Ano pa ang silbi ng mga katagang binitawan ninyo. Iyan ang sinasabi masyado na kayong TUTA sa mga desisyun ng mga KANO. Wala pong epekto ito sa mga mangingisda, hayaan ninyo silang maglayag. Mas malala kung walang huli dahil ayaw ninyo silang palautin. TAPOS na po ang drama. Tama ang ginawa ng NORTH KOREA na ilihim para din sa PILIPINAS na natataranta na akala mo katapusan na ng MUNDO. Mas matakot kayo sa BAGYO hindi sa kwitis.

    North Korea’s dropped a radioactive missile in Philippine waters. A radioactive dirty bomb with contaminants. Check the water, fish taken in these regions. These contaminants will not show right away. They will show one month and years after. Radioactive contaminants will continue to destroy that area for millions of years.
