OLONGAPO CITY — Work in government offices under the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) in the Subic Bay Freeport was suspended on Monday, July 17, due to incessant rains brought by the southwest monsoon.

SBMA Chairman and Administrator Jonathan Tan announced an administrative leave for SBMA personnel, except those delivering essential services.


But Tan said the decision to suspend work or operations in private companies in the free port is at the discretion of the employer or the management.


Zambales has been experiencing days of heavy rain since last week due to Tropical Storm Dodong and the effects of southwest monsoon. A gale warning remained raised in the province.

Based on the 5 a.m bulletin of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa), Dodong was last spotted 825 kilometers west of extreme northern luzon and on its way to Hainan Island or the southern part of China. INQ
