MANILA, Philippines — No more passengers or vessels are stranded at ports nationwide, the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) said on Tuesday.

PCG also said normal shipping and fishing operations already resumed as Typhoon Falcon (international name: Khanun) continues to blow away from the country.


“As of 11 a.m. today, 01 August 2023, the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) Command Center monitored no stranded passengers, vessels, rolling cargoes, and motorbancas in all ports nationwide,” the PCG said in a statement.


“All shipping and fishing operations have resumed their normal operations,” PCG added.

The statement comes as the four-stranded vessels in Balanacan Port in Marinduque, Cotta Port in Quezon, and San Agustin Port in Romblon resumed their journey as of 10:30 am, according to PCG.

In its 11:00 am bulletin, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) did not raise a gale warning.

However, moderate to rough seas with up to 1.5 meters to three meters of waves are expected in seaboards of Luzon, Pagasa cautioned.

Falcon, which is expected to exit the Philippine area of responsibility on Tuesday, was last spotted 875 kilometers east northeast of Extreme Northern Luzon, packing maximum sustained winds of 175 kilometers per hour (kph) near the center with gustiness of up to 215 kph, according to Pagasa.
