The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) announced on Sunday that the second tropical storm for the month of September might enter the country on Monday.

According to a report from PAGASA forecaster Obet Badrina, the weather disturbance with the international name of Talim will be known as Lannie once it enters the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on September 11.

The storm, which is currently located at around 1,745 km east of Southern Luzon, will most likely affect areas in extreme Northern Luzon as it moves on a west-northwest track at a speed of 25 kph. It is also expected to further intensify its strength as it moves over the sea.

Class Suspensions

According to the Department of Education (DepEd), classes will be automatically suspended once public storm warning signals (PSWS) are raised in the affected cities, municipalities or provinces.

For PSWS No. 1, preschool and kindergarten classes in both public and private schools will be suspended, while for PSWS No. 2, classes up to senior high school will be canceled.

For PSWS No. 3, classes in all levels including college and graduate school will be suspended, while for those without warning signals, local government officials and school authorities will have the prerogative to decide on the cancellation of classes.
