BRP Gabriela Silang, the biggest transport ship of Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) arrived in General Santos City on Monday morning.

A total of 83 locally stranded individuals, including two indigenous people, disembarked at Makar Wharf, General Santos City.

Before going to General Santos City, the PCG personnel  also transported 10 indigenous people and nine LSIs at Zamboanga City port on Sunday morning.

During the transport of indigenous people and locally stranded individuals, BRP Gabriela Silang met with BRP Malamawi along the Basilan Strait.

"After transporting the passengers at the port, BRP Malamawi returned to Basilan Strait to transport boxes of medical supplies for the PCG frontline personnel in the city," said PCG.

According to PCG, 14 indigenous people and two locally stranded individuals were transported in Cagayan de Oro City last Saturday after unloading 108 Philippine National Police (PNP) Special Action Force (SAF) personnel and medical supplies in Cebu City on Friday. Robina Asido/DMS
