CEBU CITY, Philippines–The municipal government of San Remigio in northern Cebu has provided temporary shelter to 116 individuals who were unable to leave the Hagnaya port on Tuesday, December 24, 2019, due to Typhoon Ursula.

Stranded passengers were supposed to go home to their provinces to celebrate Christmas with their respective families.

However, around 40 other passengers have opted to remain at the Hagnaya port’s terminal building.

The town’s post added that personnel from the Municipal Social Welfare office already served stranded passengers with packed meals for lunch.
