“Hindi pa lahat (nakakabalik sa kanilang mga bahay). Iyong Coron di pa bumabalik” he said.

Meanwhile, 688 individuals were affected as a result of flight cancellations in Busuanga.

Some 204 adults and 13 infants were also reported to have been stranded in Coron Port as the Philippine Coast Guard issued a sea voyage suspension due to the gale warning raised by PAGASA on October 28.
