BAGUIO CITY––Mayor Benjamin Magalong ordered the suspension of work at the City Hall starting noon Wednesday, July 28, due to a heavy downpour and strong winds caused by the southwest monsoon.

Magalong said the inclement weather was posing a danger to residents of Baguio and other places in northern Luzon.

He said the work suspension would allow government workers, except for those rendering services during a calamity, to go home early for their safety.

Authorities have reminded the public, especially motorists, to be extra cautious when passing through landslide-prone areas and slippery roads.
