Typhoon "FALCON" (with international name Chan-hom) and Tropical Storm 'EGAY' (now outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility, with international name Linfa) continue to enhance the southwest monsoon, bringing heavy rains in some parts of the Philippines, particularly in Luzon areas.

PAGASA's latest update on Typhoon "Falcon" says that it has maintained its strength as it continues to move over the Philippine Sea.

While it isn't expected to hit land and no public storm warning signal yet, Typhoon Falcon currently has a maximum sustained winds of 130kph near the center and gustiness of up to 160kph. Its current location is at 985 km east northeast of Basco, Batanes, and is forecast to move west northwest at 20kph.

Falcon is now being expected to exit PAR by Friday evening.

Meanwhile, the Department of Education (DepEd) has listed down the areas where class suspensions have been announced for today, July 9, 2015.

According to an update on its Facebook Page at 12 midnight Wednesday, no classes in all levels today both in public and private schools in the whole METRO MANILA, with Quezon City already suspending classes on Friday, July 10.

Class suspensions in all levels have been announced as well for the provinces of CAVITE, LAGUNA, RIZAL and BATANGAS (Lipa, Batangas City, Lian, Rosario, Lemery, Calatagan, Taal, San Luis, Agoncillo, San Jose, Sto. Tomas, Tanauan, Alitagtag, Ibaan, Mataasnakahoy, San Pascual and Balayan).

In Region 3, suspension of classes is also effective today for Bocaue, Malolos, San Jose del Monte and Obando (until Friday) in Bulacan.
