MANILA, Philippines — Malacañang has suspended work in all government offices and classes in all levels at public and private schools in Metro Manila effective 3:00 p.m. Friday because of the inclement weather.

By the authority of President Rodrigo Duterte, Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea signed Memorandum Circular No. 64, declaring the suspension of work and classes in the National Capital Region through the recommendation of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC).

Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles shared a copy of the memorandum on Twitter.
