Shipping and fishing operations in areas affected by typhoon “Bising” have now resumed after experts said that the weather disturbance had already weakened, the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) said on Wednesday, April 21.
“Shipping and fishing operations in all ports nationwide have resumed as of 12 p.m. today, April 21,” the PCG said in an advisory.
All stranded passengers, truck drivers, and cargo helpers were allowed to travel by sea, the Coast Guard added.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said typhoon “Bising” (international name “Surigae”) has slowed down again, now moving northwest east of mainland Cagayan before Wednesday noon, April 21.
“Bising” will likely leave the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) by Sunday, April 25, the PAGASA added.
