Cebu ferries suspend trips
CEBU CITY, Philippines—Some ferry boats in different ports of Cebu voluntarily suspended their voyages on Wednesday because of bad weather.
Cebu Coast Guard Station commander Weniel Azcuna said 44 passengers were stranded in Cebu City port after two vessels decided to cancel trips to Leyte on Tuesday evening.
MV Lapu-Lapu Ferry 8 and MV Lady of Angels bound for Baybay and Bato in Leyte, respectively, canceled their voyages for fear of rough seas caused by tropical depression “Crising.”
On Wednesday, MV Super Shuttle Ferry 17 also suspended the Danao City-Camotes Island service while the MV Lite Ferry 6 cancelled its trip from Samboan town to Dapitan City.
In Toledo City port, MV Melrivic 9 and MV Fastcraft 2 bound for San Carlos City, Negros Occidental also decided not to push through with their trips.
Azcuna said the sea voyages to and from Bantayan Island in northern Cebu and in Tangil, Dumanjug in southwestern Cebu were back to normal.
Meanwhile, five outgoing flights at Mactan Cebu International Airport (MCIA) were canceled on Wednesday due to bad weather.
MCIA’s arrival section personnel John Mark Calma said the canceled flights were Air Philippines flights 2P 254 from Cebu to Kalibo; 2P 295 from Cebu to Cagayan de Oro City; 2P 275 from Cebu to Legazpi; and Cebu Pacific flights 5J 205 from Cebu to Cagayan and 5J 827 from Cebu to Dumaguete City.
