Tuesday, July 31, 2012
LINGAYEN – There will be no classes in pre-schools to high-schools in both public and private schools in Pangasinan and Dagupan City on Tuesday due to continuous rains caused by Tropical Storm "Gener."
Classes were also suspended at 3 p.m. last Monday due to bad weather.
The Pangasinan Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (PDRRMC) and the Dagupan City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (CDRRMC) issued separate advisories for the cancellation of the classes.
"Per directive from Governor Amado Espino Jr. issued at 3 p.m today (Monday), due to non-stop rains, and more expected as a result of typhoon Gener, please be informed that classes for pre-school, elementary and high school levels in the whole province are suspended for the rest of July 30 and all day of July 31," Provincial Administrator Rafael Baraan said in a statement Monday.
City Administrator Vladimir Mata issued the separate announcement for all school heads and administrators in Dagupan City.
Both advisories that came at 3 p.m. of Monday cancelled the remaining classes of pupils and students for Monday, prompting school heads and administrators to send the pupils and students home.
In Dagupan, the heavy rains on Monday coincided with the rise of tidal water from adjacent rivers by at least 0.7 meters from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m., again flooding the streets, including most of the sections of A.B. Fernandez Avenue.
The PDRRMC through Avenix Arenas said a gale warning is up since Sunday, prohibiting fishermen from sailing to sea to fish. (With PNA/Sunnex)
