In the 8:00 pm bulletin on Tuesday, PAGASA raised Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal (TCWS) No. 2 in 15 areas.


Here's the updated list of class suspensions for Wednesday, October 21, 2020 due to 'Bagyong Pepito' (refresh page for the updates):

Since classes will be done remotely or online this year, the Department of Education said last September that class suspension will depend on the situation in an area.

"Since normally, ang suspension marami kapag maulan wala ng pasok.... Personally, ang tingin ko dapat walang pasok sa araw ng bagyo pero hindi siya kasing haba nang dati. Pero 'yung atin na class suspension on the account of heavy rain, hindi na siya mangyayari," Education Undersecretary Diosdado San Antonio said in a virtual press briefing.

San Antonio added classes may be cancelled due to possible power interruption as learners are dependent on online platforms for the distance learning.

According to the automatic class suspension guideline by DepEd, the local government units (LGUs) have the authority to declare local suspensions.

Cancellation of classes in the tertiary level especially in the private institutions will be at discretion of school administrators.
