Localized Suspension of Classes in Pangasinan (October 21, 2016)
By PANGASINAN GOVERNOR AMADO I. ESPINO, III
As Super Typhoon ‘Lawin’ leaves the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), PAGASA has lowered the Tropical Cyclone Warning for Pangasinan.
However, due to the onslaught of Super Typhoon ‘Lawin’ and Typhoon ‘Karen,’ several parts of Pangasinan have reported damage to infrastructures and livelihood of our provincemates.
Further, with the opening of the four spill gates of the San Roque Dam today, October 20, possible flooding in low-lying areas along Agno River may occur.
As such, may I encourage local chief executives of affected city or municipality, school administrators and principals to implement LOCALIZED SUSPENSION OF CLASSES TOMORROW, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 21, 2016 within your area of responsibility, based on Malacanang Executive Order No. 66, series of 2012.
Meanwhile, I urge everyone to always stay safe. Please constantly monitor the flood situation in the province and keep yourselves updated through broadcast and electronic media especially through the Official Facebook Page of Pangasinan.
GOVERNOR AMADO I. ESPINO, III
