Stranded passengers going to Roxas, Oriental Mindoro, and Batangas City are expected to stay longer in Caticlan Jetty port.

This was due to the threat of bad weather brought by Typhoon Ruby in some areas of Northern Luzon and Mindoro Island, as per reports from PAGASA.

Caticlan Jetty Port Special Operations Officer III Jean Pontero said that the total number of stranded passengers in their protection is 39.

According to Pontero, passengers from different provinces in Region 6 were stranded since Friday after the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) released an advisory suspending vessels’ operation because of Typhoon Ruby.

She added that that they continue to provide food to the passengers until the operation of the RoRo vessels are ‘Okayed’.

Meanwhile, motorbancas in Caticlan and Cagban Vice resumed operation after it was cancelled due to said typhoon.
