The DOST-PAGASA has updated the rainfall warning system effective today Aug 9, 2012. The Code GREEN in the PAGASA Rainfall Warning System is now changed to ORANGE. For the past few days, I have been hearing and watching news about the weather updates. It is very important for parents to know the latest updates on the weather condition. On TV, I highly recommend Teleradyo Channel 26 in skycable, GMA news TV – Channel 24, Unang Hirit ( weekdays 5:00am-8:15am on GMA7) or Umagang Kay Ganda Morning show (airs on weekdays from 4:45AM – 8:00AM on ABS-CBN 2) and ANC.
If you are using facebook, better like their pages so that you can see fresh updates on news not only weather updates. A very helpful updates to know the class suspensions can be seen at http://www.facebook.com/ANCalerts.
