KORONADAL CITY — The South Cotabato province suspended classes on Thursday due to incessant rains since Wednesday evening triggered by a low pressure area (LPA).

At 6:24 a.m. on Thursday, the South Cotabato Information Office said the local governments in the province suspended classes at all levels to ensure the safety of students in public and private schools.


South Cotabato is composed of this city and Polomolok, Tupi, Tampakan, Tantangan, Banga, Norala, Surallah, Sto. Nino, T’boli, and Lake Sebu towns.

The LPA was spotted 270 km east of General Santos, embedded along the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ), the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said at 11 p.m. on Wednesday.


The LPA and ITCZ would bring moderate to heavy rains over the Caraga and Davao regions, Pagasa said.

It warned of floods and landslides in the areas.
