Interviewed by Mel Tiangco at 24 Oras, Pagasa spokesman Nathaniel Cruz said that typhoon Kiko will continue to intensify the southwest monsoon and bring more rains tomorrow, August 7.
He said that they will continue to monitor the weather situation and recommend any necessary suspension of classes to DepEd by 2 or 3am tomorrow. A decision by the DepEd based on the recommendation by Pagasa should be announced by 4am tomorrow.
Ang tanong, anong oras gigising si DepEd Secretary Jesli Lapus o si DepEd NCR Director Teresita Domalanta o si CHED Chairman Emmanuel Angeles? Hindi ba't pinasusweldo natin ang mga ito upang makagawa sila ng desisyon nang maaga para hindi na kailanganin pang lumusong sa baha o mabasa nang malakas na ulan ang ating mga anak?
Please watch this space for any updates. Salamat po!
