Sorsogon LGUs cancel classes as rains pound province


Up to four local government units (LGU)s in Sorsogon province were forced to suspend school classes Friday (November 4) due to the effects of the existing Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ).

A Bicol Standard report identified these LGUs as Castilla, Pilar, Donsol and Sorsogon City.

Heavy rains caused by the ITCZ in the region during the past 24 hours have resulted in flash floods.

Sorsogon Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (PDRRMO) Spokesperson Ariel Doctama bared in the same report that yellow warning level now persists in the province as well as in Camarines Norte.

As per earlier reports, moderate to occasionally heavy rains and thunderstorms are affecting Albay, Catanduanes, Camarines Sur, Camarines Norte, Sorsogon, and Masbate, including Ticao and Burias Islands.

The public and the disaster risk reduction and management councils concerned have been advised to take appropriate actions and monitor the weather condition.
