MANILA, Philippines (Updated) – Class suspensions on Thursday, June 7, 2018 are 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 6, 2018, here are the areas which could potentially experience occasional to heavy rains:
While landfall remains less likely to occur, “DOMENG” is expected to enhance the Southwest Monsoon (Habagat), which will result in moderate to heavy monsoon rains over MIMAROPA and Western Visayas beginning Friday, with gradual northward progression of monsoon rains towards the rest of the western section of Luzon, including Metro Manila during the weekend.
Here’s the live list of class/ work suspensions as declared by respective LGUs on June 7, 2018.
