#WalangPasok: Class Suspensions on June 8, 2018 (Friday)

 

MANILA, Philippines - Class suspensions on Friday, June 8, 2018 are imminent and expected to be announced at certain areas by Local Government Units (LGUs) due to inclement weather conditions brought by southwesterly winds or "Habagat" intensified by the existing Tropical Depression "Domeng". To quote from the announcement of PAGASA on June 7, 2018, here are the areas which could experience occasional to heavy rains:

While landfall is less likely to occur, "DOMENG" could enhance the Southwest Monsoon (Habagat), which will result in moderate to heavy monsoon rains over Western Visayas and the western sections of CALABARZON and MIMAROPA beginning Friday, with the northward progression of monsoon rains, towards Metro Manila and the rest of the western section of Luzon during the weekend. 
Here's the live list of class/ work suspensions as declared by respective LGUs on June 8, 2018.
