As no storm signal was hoisted over Metro Manila, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) said it was leaving to authorities of colleges and universities whether to suspend classes or not.
Radio reports said those that declared classes suspensions were Philippine Christian University, Polytechnic University of the Philippines and Far Eastern University, all in Manila.
"Dito sa area namin kasi pag umulan nagkakabuhol-buhol ang traffic at bumabaha sa Anonas Street. Gusto namin pangalagaan ang estudyante namin [Our area is flood-prone and traffic builds up when it rains. We want to protect our students]," PUP president Dante Guevarra said in an interview on dzXL radio, in explaining the suspension of classes for the day.
In a telephone call to GMANews.TV, Reinerio Quinto, school registrar of the Central Colleges of the Philippines along Aurora Boulevard in Quezon City, said they were also suspending classes.
"We know that roads to our school are flooded or would be flooded, so our school president decided to call off classes for today," Quinto said.
