Escudero received reports regarding Sorsoganons who were stranded in Camarines Sur, Camarines Norte and Quezon.
Some of them were stranded for two days without food and shelter.
“Ang naunang batch na sinundo ng Team na binubuo ng 58 katao na residente mula sa iba’t-ibang bayan ng Sorsogon ay dadalhin sa isang quarantine facility sa Sorsogon City bago sila pauwiin sa kani-kanilang pamilya,” the Office of Governor said.
Meanwhile, Governor Escudero said that a medical team will monitor the health of those who are under quarantine.
