TAGBILARAN CITY – Although Bohol was not directly hit by Typhoon “Ompong” classes in some towns in the province were suspended on Friday.

Affected were classes in all levels in both private and public high schools in the towns of Jagna, Valencia, Garcia Hernandez, and Carlos P. Garcia Island.


On Friday morning, the Holy Spirit School in Tagbilaran City also declared a suspension of classes in all levels.

Various local government units declared the class suspensions after the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services said the typhoon would bring rains to the Visayas.


As of Friday morning, Bohol had cloudy skies with scattered to widespread rain showers.

Boat trips from Bohol to Cebu City and Dumaguete City on Friday were canceled due to Ompong.

Some fishermen in Baclayon, Albur, Lila and Jagna towns placed their fishing vessels offshore for safety.

Some tourist vessels from Panglao were anchored off Tagbilaran Bay near the K of C promenade as protection against wind damage.

Despite the bad weather condition, some fishermen went fishing, while some residents were swimming at the beach.
