The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) on Wednesday recorded more than 3,000 passengers and drivers stranded in several regions due to Typhoon Egay.

From 4 a.m. to 8 a.m., a total of 3,738 passengers, drivers, and cargo helpers, were stranded in Bicol, Eastern Visayas, and Southern Tagalog.

The situation extended to maritime transportation as well, with 52 vessels, 27 motorbancas, and 769 rolling cargoes also left stranded.

As a safety measure, 67 vessels and 66 motorbancas sought shelter to protect against the fury of the typhoon.

As the authorities continue to assess the impact of Typhoon Egay, rescue and relief efforts remain a top priority to ensure the safety and well-being of those affected.

In the latest update of PAGASA, four areas remained under Signal No. 4 as Typhoon Egay "wobbles" or slowed down over the waters near Fuga Island in Aparri, Cagayan province.
