(Updated, 7:30 PM)

In its 11:00 AM update for August 14, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) warned of possible flash floods and landslides as the areas of  Benguet, Bataan, Pampanga, Bulacan, Tarlac, Zambales, Metro Manila, and Ilocos Region continue to experience heavy rains due to southwest monsoon or habagat.

Because of that, several local government units (LGUs) have already announced the suspension of classes in their respective constituencies for tomorrow, August 15.

More LGUs are expected to announce class suspensions in the coming hours as PAGASA releases its 5:00 PM weather bulletin.

CHED guidelines on class suspensions

If there’s heavy rains or floods in the area where you will be coming from, keep in mind CHED Memo #15 (2012).

“Students who are unable to report to class or participate in scheduled activities such as exams due to inclement weather shall be given consideration and be allowed to make up for the missed class or activity.”
