“Due to [the] inclement weather due to Typhoon ‘Tisoy,’ work at Pasig city hall is suspended as of 10 a.m. today (Tuesday, 3 Dec 2019),” Sotto said in a Facebook post.

The mayor, however, assured that City Hall employees will continue to give services as long as there is a queue of people asking for assistance.

“All city employees are encouraged to be part of the incident management team,” he said.

In another post, Sotto earlier said that services of the local government will continue despite the inclement weather.

He urged the public to postpone plans of going to the City Hall for safety reasons.

“We are expecting heavy winds due to Bagyong (typhoon) ‘Tisoy’ today [Tuesday]. Our DRRMO [Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office] and incident management team will be on Red Alert starting 8 a.m.,” he said.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) has placed Metro Manila under typhoon Signal No. 2.

According to the state weather bureau, the metropolis may experience strong winds and heavy rains in the next several hours.
