Governor Aris Aumentado, in an advisory issued Friday, Oct. 28, declared the suspension of classes.
“Tungod sa padayon nga pag-ulan atong gi suspende ang mga klase karong adlawa sa tanang level sa mga eskwelahan.
Mag amping kitang tanan ug mag mabinantayon kita ilabi na ang mga anaa sa mga lugar nga dali mabahaan, duol sa mga suba ug mga prone to landslide areas,” Aumentado said.
