All classes in kinder to Grade 12 in private and public schools in El Nido have been suspended by the municipal government due to the adverse effects of tropical storm “Jenny”

The suspension of classes on August 28 was ordered by Mayor Edna Gacot-Lim on Tuesday through a letter sent to Daniel Belleza, the district supervisor of Department of Education (DepEd) El Nido del Norte.

A copy of the letter ordering the cancellation of classes from kinder to Grade 12 was posted on the social media account of DepEd provincial school division spokesperson Grace Estefano and Raymond Osorio of the El Nido municipal disaster risk reduction and management office.

Based on all available data from PAGASA-DOST, at 3 a.m. Wednesday, Jenny was estimated to be at 60 kilometers northwest of Dagupan City, Pangasinan with maximum sustained winds of 55 km/h near the center and gustiness of up to 85 km/h. It is moving west northwest at 35 km/h.

Southwest monsoon is continuously affecting the western section of Southern Luzon and Visayas.
