(Updated 9:12 a.m.) Classes were suspended in the entire Bohol province, Bacolod City in Negros Occidental, and Davao City Tuesday due to the threat of bad weather conditions from Tropical Depression Zoraida.

In Bohol, Governor Edgar Chatto ordered the suspension for classes from preschool to high school in private and public schools Tuesday morning, the provincial government said.

“Gov. Chatto suspends classes today in Bohol pre-school/elementary/high school both private and public schools due to TD Zoraida,” it said on its Twitter account 

As of 5 a.m. Tuesday, Bohol was among the areas under Storm Signal No. 1 due to Zoraida.

On Monday, Jagna town in Bohol suspended classes for Tuesday and Wednesday in anticipation of bad weather from Zoraida.

PAGASA earlier said Zoraida may make landfall over the Davao region Tuesday morning.

In Davao City, classes were suspended Tuesday due to the threat of ill weather from Tropical Depression Zoraida, the city government said.

In an advisory, the Davao City government said Mayor Rodrigo Duterte ordered the suspension of classes at all levels, even if Davao City was not under a storm signal.

“PAGASA advisories have stated Davao City will be experiencing rains with gusty winds,” Davao City said in an advisory. 

Meanwhile, state-run Philippine Information Agency said Bacolod City suspended classes in the preschool and elementary levels. Negros Occidental, where Bacolod is located, is also under Signal No. 1 as of 5 a.m.
At least 29 areas in the Visayas and Mindanao were placed under Storm Signal No. 1 early Tuesday, with TD Zoraida expected to make landfall over the Davao region, state weather forecasters said. — with Amanda Fernandez/DVM/RSJ, GMA News
