Meanwhile, acting Cebu Governor Agnes Magpale also said she has given the mayors in the different cities and towns in Cebu the discretion to decided if there was a need to suspend classes.
Magpale said there were different weather conditions in the northern and southern Cebu based on the information she got from the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration.
