A total of 174 passengers were stranded as of 11a.m. on Tuesday in different ports in Central Visayas.
There’s no typhoon signal hoisted over the region.
But the cancellations were made upon the discretion of the vessels’ skippers, according to the Philippine Coast Guard in Central Visayas (PCG-7).
Lt. Jr. Grade Michael John Encina, PCG-7 spokesman, said operators can cancel trips to ensure the safety of its passengers.
“If they sense their own vessels can’t handle the weather conditions, the operators can inform the Coast Guard that they will suspend their trips,” Encina said.
As of 11 a.m., PCG-7 said there were three fast crafts bound for Tagbilaran City, one fast craft bound for Ormoc City in Leyte, one slow boat bound for Loon and four motorbancas bound for Getafe, Bohol that canceled their trips.
