This will mean more passengers in Visayas and Mindanao -- who are going back to either their work across the seas for the last working day of 2014, or going home for the New Year celebrations, will be stranded today and tomorrow or until the storm signal is lifted, in the various seaports.

Fastcrafts, roll-on roll-off and inter-island vessels as well as fishing boats are automatically prohibited from sailing once a storm signal is hoisted in areas where they ply or cross.

In its 5PM update yesterday, PAGASA also said Seniang may make landfall this morning in the vicinity of Tandag, Surigao del Sur.

PAGASA said that as of 4PM yesterday, Seniang was estimated at 150 km east of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur, with maximum winds of 55 kph near the center.

It is forecast to move west-northwest at 13 kph and is expected to be 110 km north-northeast of Lumbia by this (Monday) afternoon.

By Tuesday (tomorrow) afternoon it is expected to be 100 km west of Dipolog City.

By Wednesday afternoon it is expected to be 190 km southeast of Puerto Princesa City, Palawan.
