Class Suspensions for Friday (September 1, 2023) Due to Effects of Enhanced Habagat
WALANG PASOK – Various local government units have declared class suspensions in several parts of the country due to the intensification of the habagat.
Throughout the week, Super Typhoon Goring brought about strong winds and heavy downpours nationwide. These adverse weather conditions triggered flooding in various areas, leading to the displacement of thousands of residents.
As Super Typhoon Goring exits the Philippine Area of Responsibility, Severe Tropical Storm Hanna enters the country’s vicinity on Wednesday, August 30, 2023. Both Hanna and Goring have heightened the southwest monsoon, which will result in overcast skies and moderate to heavy rainfall across the nation.
With the Philippines grappling with the impact of severe weather conditions brought on by the enhanced Southwest Monsoon, multiple areas have announced the suspension of classes on Friday, September 1, 2023. This suspension will affect both public and private educational institutions.
The decision to suspend classes has been made as a precautionary measure to ensure the safety of students, teachers, and school personnel due to the heavy rainfall and potential flooding caused by the inclement weather.
The influence of severe tropical storms and typhoons can give rise to various weather-related incidents, including landslides, flooding, and transportation disruptions. By implementing class suspensions in the affected areas, authorities are taking proactive steps to minimize potential hazards and ensure the safety of the community.
