More than 400 passengers stranded for two days at the Manila North Port Terminal due to Typhoon Quinta were finally allowed to travel on Tuesday, according to a 24 Oras report.
Ships traveling to Cebu and Butuan were allowed to sail following the improvement in the weather.
Passengers were delighted at the announcement after some of them had spent nights sleeping on the port's floor.
The travelers were allowed to enter the terminal at dawn as the ships began to depart.
The management of the Manila North Port Terminal explained that whether or not ships would be allowed to sail to the Visayas and Mindanao depended on the Philippine Coast Guard's announcement on the weather. — DVM, GMA News
