Due to ‘Agaton,’ 500 travelers have been stranded in Sorsogon.
LEGAZPI CITY, PHILIPPINES – The Office of Civil Defense (OCD) in Bicol said that 503 people were stranded, and close to 500 rolling cargos and one marine vessel were compelled to seek cover at the harbor of Matnog in Sorsogon on Sunday in preparation of the effects of Tropical Storm Agaton.
A sea travel advisory issued by the Coast Guard District-Bicol warned concerned agencies to prepare for “Agaton,” according to Gremil Alexis Naz, OCD-Bicol spokesperson.
“All marine trips from Bicol bound for Northern Samar, Eastern Samar, and Samar have been banned as of 5 a.m. today (Sunday),” Naz said in an interview.
He noted that there will be no cancellations of sea excursions to Catanduanes and Masbate and that port inspections will continue in collaboration with the provincial disaster risk reduction and management council (DRRMC) emergency operating centers.
Despite the lack of Tropical Cyclone Wind Signals, the Bicol DRRMC is on red alert, according to Naz.
“Agaton” continued to travel slowly westward over the coastal seas of Balangiga, Eastern Samar, as of the 2 p.m. meteorological advisory, with maximum sustained winds of 75 kilometers per hour around the center.
