President Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. has declared a suspension of classes and work in all public schools and government offices on Monday, Sept. 26, in Metro Manila and in Regions I, II, III, CAR, Calabarzon, Mimaropa, and Bicol due to Super Typhoon Karding.

Marcos said he received and approved the recommendation to suspend classes and work from the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, which said that such action will prevent any untoward incident and ensure public safety.

Under the NDRRMC's recommendation, frontline agencies providing emergency services are exempted from the suspension of government work.

The suspension of classes and work in private companies, offices and schools is left to the discretion of their respective heads.

Malacañang is set to issue a memorandum circular on the suspension of classes and work in all public schools and government offices later in the day, Marcos said.

Karding, the 11th storm to hit the country this year, was spotted over the coastal waters of Burdeos, Polillo Islands in Quezon at 4 p.m. on Sunday, state weather bureau PAGASA said.

It is likely to make landfall in the vicinity of the northern portion of Quezon on Sunday night, with an earlier landfall or close approach in the vicinity of Polillo Islands possible. It is forecast to maintain its strength prior to its landfall, it added.

Karding is forecast to track generally westward in the next six to 12 hours, then west northwestward for the remainder of the day, PAGASA said.

It will then pass over Central Luzon and emerge over the West Philippine Sea over the coastal waters of Zambales or Pangasinan. The typhoon will then continue moving westward over the West Philippine Sea for the remainder of the forecast period, it added.
