Earlier today, the Department of Education and the Commission on Higher Education issued a statement denying rumors that classes will be suspended until Friday, August 10 2012. It looks like they spoke too soon.

MERALCO has also denied rumors circulating via SMS that a Luzon-wide brownout will be happening soon.

The government still asking the public to help instill orderliness and care of evacuation premises and properties.
