#WalangPasok – Class suspensions for 26 September 2022 due to typhoon Karding

(UPDATED, 9:00 PM of 25 SEPTEMBER 2022)

President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr. has announced the suspension of classes in all levels as well as work in government offices across Luzon – covering regions I, II, III, IV, V, and Metro Manila – as recommended by the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC).

In its weather bulletin released 11:00 PM of September 24, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) reported that typhoon “Karding” (international name: Noru) was last spotted 430 kilometers east of Baler, Aurora (15.3°N, 125.6°E).

“Karding” has maximum sustained winds of 130 km/h near the center, gustiness of up to 160 km/h, and central pressure of 975 hPa. It is moving northwestward at 15 kilometers per hour, with tropical cyclone winds of up to 270 kilometers from the center. It will remain in the Philippine area of responsibility by Tuesday.

PAGASA likewise announced that public storm warning signals are now in effect over parts of Luzon, particularly Region II, III, IV-A, and Metro Manila. See the complete list later in this post.

With “Karding” expected to have an onslaught over the next two days, local government executives in certain areas have already announced the suspension of classes for Monday, 26 September 2022. The Filipino Scribe will be updating this post when new information becomes available.

Nueva Ecija

Caloocan City
Las Piñas City

Quezon City
San Juan City (including work in government offices)
Valenzuela City

Olongapo City

It is worth pointing out that the rules for automatic class suspensions are in effect in accordance with Department of Education (DepEd) Order #14 series of 2021. DepEd clarified that the guidelines apply regardless of the learning delivery modality.

Local government units (LGUs) can also suspend classes in their respective areas as they deem appropriate. It is likely that governors and mayors will wait for the 5:00 AM weather bulletin before deciding on class suspensions. It must be reiterated that LGUs must still suspend classes as soon as possible especially since inclement weather makes Internet connectivity unstable and that it also causes power interruptions.
