Heed Bad Weather Warnings: Police

Manus police are urging residents to take heed of strong wind and bad weather warnings.

Provincial police commander, chief inspector David Yapu, highlighted his concern to 17 boat operators and crews during a boat race at Mbunai village on Thursday, January 20th.

He said many lives have been lost at sea because of the ignorance of boat operators and crews.

“Safety comes first before people travel out at sea,” said the PPC.

He appealed to all boat owners and operators to work together to avoid boating mishaps.
