The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) on Sunday reported that at least 8,000 people have been stranded at the Sorsogon Port since Friday because of delays caused by a damaged ramp that lets vehicles board roll-on-roll-off (RORO) vessels.
The NDRRMC said that as of Saturday night, there were 8,041 stranded passengers at the said port.
The council also noted that 333 trucks, 98 buses and 69 cars were stuck in a queue that stretched six kilometers from the port as of Saturday night.
“The number of stranded passengers and vehicles continue to increase,” the NDRRMC added.
