MANILA - The fishing boat GEMVER1, which was repaired after being damaged by a Chinese vessel in the West Philippine Sea, was damaged again after Typhoon Ursula hit San Jose, Occidental Mindoro, where the vessel was anchored.

The boat was knocked down by strong winds and high waves brought by the typhoon, according to the San Jose local government.

The vessel was still being prepared to be used for fishing when it was knocked down.

It was earlier repaired after being hit in the infamous collision that ignited a public outcry against Chinese ships in the West Philippine Sea.
