Tours to Puerto Princesa Underground River was canceled Monday morning due to unfavorable sea condition brought by Tropical Depression Urduja.
Park Superintendent Elizabeth Maclang said the cancellation of boat operation has been declared since Sunday. Going to the underground river through the Jungle Trail is also “not possible due to continuous rain,” she added.
State-run weather bureau PAGASA discouraged sea travel over the seaboards of Palawan as wave height in the open sea is dangerous, reaching 1.25 to 4 meters.
TD Urduja made landfall over Taytay town Monday morning. It brings rains with gusty winds, causing possible flash floods and landslides in hazard-prone areas in the province.
The tropical depression is expected to exit the country on Wednesday morning.
