Central Luzon politikos on Thursday have extended the suspension of classes and work in most areas in the region as typhoon Ompong continues to approach the country’s main island of Luzon.

An announcement on Tarlac Governor Susan Yap’s Facebook account states that classes and work in the entire province are suspended tomorrow, Sept. 14, “in preparation for the expected onslaught of super typhoon Ompong.”

It also said that suspension of work in private companies are left to the discretion of their executives.

For Zambales, where classes through Friday will be suspended, Gov. Amor Deloso cautioned his constituents against the rains and winds that Ompong will bring, as he notes that the province is already under Tropical Warning Signal No. 1 on Thursday.

“Hindi pa mararanasan sa ngayon ang lakas ng Bagyong ‘Ompong’ ngunit, ayon sa tala ng PAGASA-DOST, sa susunod na mga oras ay maaari na itong magdala ng mga ulan at paghangin sa buong lalawigan. Maging alerto Zambalenos!” Deloso said on his Facebook account.

All classes and work are suspended as well in Nueva Ecija until Saturday, except for those involved in the government’s front-line services, according to Gov. Cherry Umali.

Pampanga Acting Gov. Dennis “Delta” Pineda issued an announcement also of the suspension of all classes and work in the province on Friday.

“All are hereby advised to take all precautionary measures. Let us pray for the safety of all,” he said.

According to the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Administration, typhoon “Ompong,” as of 5 p.m. Thursday, is expected to make landfall in Cagayan-Isabela area on Saturday early morning.

It was last monitored to be packing winds of up to 205 kilometers per hour, and gusts of up to 255 kph.(END)
