walang pasok bagyong amang prompts class suspension april 12

MANILA, PHILIPPINES — As Tropical Depression or Bagyong Amang approaches the Bicol region, several local government units in the affected areas have decided to suspend classes on Wednesday, April 12, due to the expected heavy rains. Residents are advised to take necessary precautions and stay updated on the latest weather bulletins from PAGASA.

The following areas listed have canceled classes:

Quezon province

  • Calauag (preschool to senior high school)
  • General Luna (preschool to senior high school)
  • Gumaca (preschool to senior high school)
  • Infanta (preschool to senior high school)
  • Jomalig
  • Lopez (preschool to senior high school)
  • Lucena City (preschool to senior high school)
  • Mauban (preschool to senior high school)
  • Mulanay
  • Tagkawayan


  • Angono (preschool to senior high school)
  • Taytay (preschool to senior high school)

Central Luzon

Due to Amang, which strengthened into a tropical depression early on Tuesday morning, portions of Luzon and the Visayas were under Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal No. 1.

Amang is seen to continue on its course for the following 24 hours before heading northwest.


Heavy Rainfall Outlook

According to PAGASA, Camarines Provinces, Quezon, Laguna, and Rizal can expect to receive 50-100 mm of rainfall in the coming days. This may lead to isolated flash floods and rain-induced landslides, especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards. 

These areas have been identified in hazard maps, as well as localities that experienced considerable amounts of rainfall for the past several days.

The tropical depression is forecast to weaken into a low-pressure area (LPA) by tomorrow, possibly earlier, due to the combined effects of land interaction, dry air intrusion, and increasing vertical wind shear.

As such, local residents and authorities in these areas are advised to take necessary precautions and remain vigilant during this period of heavy rainfall.  – WhatALife!/Jayve
