Classes suspended in 2 Quezon towns due to TD Amang

All sea travels in Quezon province were suspended on Monday (Feb. 27) due to a gale warning over the eastern seaboards of Luzon brought by the strong northeast monsoon locally known as "amihan."


LUCENA CITY — The local governments of Infanta and Polilio in Quezon province suspended classes in public and private schools on Tuesday, April 11, due to Tropical Depression Amang.

Authorities in Infanta, in separate announcements on social media, suspended classes from preschool to kindergarten, while in the island town of Polilio, classes in daycare centers and from kindergarten up to Grade 12 were also postponed.


Meanwhile, the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) in Quezon also suspended sea travel on Tuesday for all vessels due to the approaching weather disturbance.


“Trips of all vessels, regardless of type and tonnage within the southern portion of Quezon Province are hereby suspended effective as of 11 a.m.,” the PCG-Southern Quezon said in a public advisory. The suspension order covers the travel of sea vessels from Lucena City port to Marinduque, Masbate, and Romblon.

Sea travel from Atimonan and Gumaca port to Alabat island, as well as from Real port to Polillo group of islands, has also been suspended.

The PCG-Southern Quezon cited Memorandum Circulars: HPCG MC 02-13 issued on June 5, 2013 titled “Guidelines on movement of vessels during heavy weather” that states “no vessel of any type or tonnage shall not be allowed to sail except to take shelter.”

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa), in its Tuesday 11 a.m. bulletin, said Amang was last located 270 km east of Virac, Catanduanes with maximum sustained winds of 55 kph and gustiness of up to 70 kph.

Tropical Wind Signal No. 1 remains hoisted in Catanduanes, Sorsogon, Albay, Camarines Sur, Camarines Norte, Quezon (Pitogo, San Andres, Buenavista, San Francisco, Calauag, Infanta, Lopez, Catanauan, Mulanay, Guinayangan, Unisan, General Luna, Plaridel, Quezon, Alabat, Sampaloc, Padre Burgos, Macalelon, Mauban, General Nakar, Perez, Agdangan, Gumaca, Atimonan, Real, San Narciso, Tagkawayan, Pagbilao, City of Tayabas), including Pollilo Islands, Marinduque, and Masbate, including Ticao Island and Burias Island.

The suspension order would be lifted, and sea travel for all types of crafts may be resumed any time when weather/sea conditions permit as may be declared by Pagasa.
