Achilles Galindes, acting division manager of the Philippine Ports Authority in Matnog town, said as of 7 a.m., aside from the passengers, 450 light vehicles, 460 trucks and 36 buses bound for Visayas and Mindanao were also stranded since Saturday.

“To be honest, there’s no guarantee that those who will arrive tomorrow can still cross,” he said.
