The torrential rains have diminished as TD Josie leaves the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR). PDRRMO monitoring of the Province’s river systems show it is steadily receding, but the areas that are low-lying and located near the river banks must still keep watch on floodwaters.

Likewise, folks living along steep elevations must also constantly monitor for potential landslides as the soil may have been too saturated.

In my capacity as the PDRRMC Chairman, I hereby declare the LOCALIZED SUSPENSION OF CLASSES TOMORROW, TUESDAY, JULY 24, 2018 in accordance with Executive Order No. 66, s. 2012. I urge the Chairpersons of the LDRRMCs as well as the School Administrators to suspend classes if they see the need. They are likewise directed to conduct damage assessment on the effects of severe flooding in their own cities/municipalities.

This memorandum shall be be effective immediately.

Amado I. Espino, III
