A cargo vessel sank off Guimaras Island in the Philippines Sunday morning due to inclement weather. No casualty is reported so far, the coast guard said.

Operatives of the Philippine Coast Guard are racing against time to contain oil spillage in the area, Xinhua reported.

Nemesio Igona, captain of the vessel, said it collided with another boat, after the anchor of the boat was washed away and drifted into the sea. 

Igona said all the 29 crew members of the vessel were safe.
