The 111 meter long, 2900 dwt ro-ro ferry Shuttle Roro 5 ran aground at Mabini, Batangas, Philippines. The ferry was seeking sheltered waters when Typhoon Nina (Nock-Ten) struck the area. As the storm intensified, the rough seas were too much for the Shuttle Roro 5. The crew decided to abandon ship rather stay on board the vessel. All 25 passengers and crew abandoned ship and were later rescued. The ferry was blown by the storm until it rested just off the shoreline. Reports state the hull of the ferry sustained damage, but no survey of the hull has been completed. No reports of injuries or pollution released.
