No classes today, October 6, 2023 due to inclement weather. After Typhoon Jenny’s entrance in the Philippine area, numerous class suspensions across the country have been implemented, particularly in the northern and capital region. Local governments have made an official announcement for class suspension today.
According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), Typhoon Koinu (formerly known as Jenny) is currently 375 KM west northwest of Itbayat, Batanes (21.8°N, 118.4°E).
This results to an official class suspension today for the following places:
- Manila – All levels (public and private)
- Malabon – All levels (public and private)
- Navotas – All levels (public and private)
Meanwhile, other provinces like Metro Manila, Zambales, Bataan, Pampanga, and Bulacan also received alert notification due to the typhoon.
Here’s the latest overview the impacted areas after the classes are suspended:
Ilocos Norte, Batanes, and Babuyan Islands will be experiencing cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms caused by the trough of TY which will result in possible flash floods or landslides due to moderate to heavy rains.
On the other hand, Metro Manila, Zambales. Bataan, Cavite, Batangas, Occidental Mindoro, and the rest of Ilocos Region will be experiencing cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to the southwest monsoon which will cause possible flash floods or landslides due to moderate to at times heavy rains.
Lastly, the rest of the country will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms caused by southwest monsoon/localized thunderstorms which will result in possible flash floods or landslides during severe thunderstorms.
Overall, the classes are suspended until further notice and if weather conditions begin to improve. Stay tuned for more updates.
