Tacloban City announced the suspension of classes on Tuesday at all levels in both public and private schools, due to scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms.

In an advisory late evening of Monday, the city government said the suspension was part of the “continuous precautionary measure of the weather disturbance for the safety of students.”
