PCG-7 urges passengers to no longer go to the ports while waiting for the storm to pass if their trips have been cancelled so as not to crowd the area. 

Sea vessels are still not allowed to sail in Central Visayas because of the incoming typhoon. 

All PCG-7 units are on standby for any possible maritime emergency. /bmjo
