Classes in Davao suspended due to heavy floods

Classes in Davao City public and private schools (elementary and high schools) have been suspended due to heavy floods barely a week after the start of classes. The Office of the City Mayor announced as early as 5AM today the suspension of classes in public schools within the poblacion adn Talomo areas. City Administrator Wendel Avisado said while it may be discretionary on the part of private schools to follow the mayor's directive, the schools usually do so when the situation calls for it.

Matina area is flooded, with the street just in front of GSIS somehow unpassable. Matina Aplaya has knee-high waters already while Acasia Street near Ateneo de Davao in Matina is also flooded. Stella Maris and Ateneo de Davao have declared a suspension of classes.
