The PCG-District Southern Tagalog (PCG-DST) announced that as of 9 a.m. Monday, sea voyages in Batangas, Romblon, Marinduque, Oriental Mindoro, Occidental Mindoro, and the southern part of Quezon provinces have resumed.

However, the PCG-DST said sea travel for all types of vessels in the northern part of Quezon, including the Polillo group of islands in the Pacific Ocean remained suspended.

On Saturday, PCG suspended sea travel in Southern Tagalog due to rough sea conditions brought by Aghon.
