Because of flight cancellations and restrictions on sea travel, many travelers from Manila to Cagayan de Oro who instead opted for land trip got themselves stranded at Matnog Port in Sorsogon, Bicol after they were caught with the implementation of enhanced community quarantine in the entire Luzon.

With the lockdown, sea travel between Matnog and Allen in Northern Samar were suspended indefinitely. Passengers, private vehicles (SUV, Sedan, Van, Motorcycle, Tricycle, Bicycle) and public transport (Bus, VHire, Taxi, Jeepney) were not allowed as only cargo shipments were allowed.

As shown below, they are temporarily encamped at the Municipal Gym in Matnog town and with the duration of the quarantine still uncertain.
