Over 3,000 individuals were evacuated in Pasacao town in Camarines Sur as Typhoon Tisoy nears Bicol region on Monday.
According to Mayor Niño Tayco, most of those evacuated were from landslide prone areas and residential places close to shore.
“That’s the data that we have as of 5 a.m. Monday but the LGU would still continue forced evacuations as we anticipate the landfall of Tisoy either tonight or early morning of Tuesday,” Tayco said.
Meanwhile, more than 100 passengers were stranded in Pasacao Port.
Tayo said the affected passengers were bound for Burias and San Pascual Islands in Masbate Province.
