Here are the areas included in #WalangPasok on January 14, 2020 due to Taal eruption
The Local Government Units (LGU) in different cities declared class suspension (#WalangPasok) on January 14, 2020 due to Taal eruption.
On Sunday, Taal volcano started to spew ashes that reached even nearby cities. The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) already issued the Alert Level 4.
On January 13, several LGUs near the active volcano already suspended classes. Many streets and routes for commuters were also closed because of zero visibility due to ashfall. The Department of Health issued an advisory informing the public of the possible health danger people can acquire from ashfall.
As the situation resulting from the eruption is not yet alleviated, LGUs from different areas still declared #WalangPasok on January 20.
Here are the areas, based on the official Twitter account of #WalangPasok:
Classes suspended in ALL LEVELS –
- Las Piñas
- San Juan
- Rizal (whole province)
- Cavite (whole province)
- Batangas Province
- Biñan, Sta. Rosa City (Laguna)
This information about the class suspensions is as of 8:05 PM, January 13, 2020.
Meanwhile, earlier this Monday, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) warned the public that light to moderate rains may trigger mudslides in areas near Taal Volcano.
Based on a previous report, the eruption of Taal volcano triggered rain and thunderstorm over the province of Batangas. This situation is more likely to happen also in nearby areas.
Keep safe everyone.
