Several schools have announced the cancellation of classes on November 25 as "Marce" (international name: Tokage) intensified into a tropical storm as it moved towards the Panay group of islands Friday morning.
Classes have been suspended in the following areas:
Calapan City, Oriental Mindoro
PRE-SCHOOL TO HIGHSCHOOL
In its 5 a.m. weather bulletin, PAGASA said Marce was packing maximum sustained winds of up to 65 kilometers per hour (kph) and gusts of up to 110 kph.
The tropical storm, moving west-northwest at 24 kph, is expected to exit the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) by Sunday evening.
