Marine vessel runs aground in Sorsogon

A marine vessel has run aground in Barcelona, Sorsogon, due to the bad weather condition brought about by Tropical Depression Salome this morning.

As of this writing, it could not yet be determined whether it is a passenger or cargo vessel.

The vessel was spotted at around 9 a.m.

Mayor Wowo Fortes in a media interview said they will send Bantay Dagat personnel to check on the marine vessel later today.

The MDRRMC is also instructed to assess the possible destruction of corals. (With additional reports from Edgar Tumangan)
