The DepEd, however, said the Local Government Unit (LGU) has the authority to declare class suspensions in their respective areas where there is no storm signal.

It said local chief executives have the prerogative to suspend classes in case localized cancelation is necessary, for instance in the event of flooding even without a storm signal, earthquakes, tsunami, landslides and fire.
