March 19 classes in Davao City suspended due to ‘Chedeng’
DAVAO CITY – The city government of Davao has suspended classes in public and private schools (all levels) on Tuesday, March 19.
In Proclamation No. 01-2019, Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio said the suspension of school classes was because of the imminent arrival of Tropical Depression “Chedeng.” She also said the move will ensure safety of and avert any inconveniences to students.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said Monday that while Chedeng has slightly slowed down, it has maintained its strength and may hit land in the eastern coast of Davao Oriental on Tuesday morning.
Pagasa has already placed several areas in Mindanao under Signal No. 1.
Chedeng’s trough will bring scattered to at times widespread moderate to heavy rain over Surigao del Sur, Agusan del Sur, Davao Oriental, Compostela Valley, and Davao del Norte on Monday and in most parts of Mindanao by Tuesday, according to Pagasa. /kga
