TUGUEGARAO CITY—The Office of the Civil Defense (OCD) has placed Cagayan Valley on blue code alert starting Monday, July 5, as Tropical Depression “Emong” accelerates towards extreme northern Luzon.

The blue alert means half of the staff of government agencies involved in disaster preparation would be on standby for any emergencies.
