Gov suspends classes, work in Cagayan on Monday
BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya — Cagayan Governor Manuel Mamba has suspended classes and work in 18 towns on Monday as the province braced for tropical storm “Carina,” which made landfall on Sunday noon.
Mamba cancelled classes in all levels in northern Cagayan, while classes are suspended from pre-school to senior high school the rest of the province, according to a bulletin from the Cagayan information office.
“This is to ensure the safety of school children from possible flooding due to the typhoon, especially that many flood-prone areas in the northern towns are access roads to schools,” Mamba said.
Northern Cagayan covers the towns of Santa Ana, Gonzaga, Sta. Teresita, Buguey, Aparri, Lal-lo, Camalaniugan, Allacapan, Ballesteros, Abulug, Pamplona, Sanchez Mira, Claveria, Sta. Paxedes, Calayan, Lasam, Gattaran and Rizal. JE/rga
