Work, classes suspended in Camarines Sur as ‘Dante’ nears

LEGAZPI CITY –– The Camarines Sur local government ordered Wednesday the suspension of work in its government offices and online classes at all levels in public and private schools, due to the threat of Tropical Storm “Dante” (international name: Choi-wan).

Camarines Sur Gov. Miguel Luis “Migz” Villafuerte said the suspension of work in other government agencies and private companies is highly encouraged and left this to the discretion of their respective heads.
