Signal 1 in Negros,
classes suspended



The contingency measures of Negros Occidental and Bacolod City were in place, in preparation for the onslaught of Tropical Storm “Ramon”, with storm signal number one up over Negros Island last night, Acting Governor Genaro Alvarez Jr. and Mayor Evelio Leonardia said yesterday.

In a bulletin issued at 11 last night, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration hoisted Storm Signal No. 1 over Negros Occidental and Oriental, from an earlier bulletin that only covered northern Negros. Winds of 45-60 kph are expected within the next 36 hours, it said.

Leonardia last night issued Executive Order No. 25 suspending classes in all preschool and elementary levels in Bacolod City as a preemptive measure due to unpredictable weather.moremoremore
