Natural disasters happen at the most unexpected times. In South East Asia, the Philippines is one of the countries that encounter numerous typhoons annually. Before September ended this week, a typhoon entered the country. Super Typhoon Karding, internationally known as Noru, raged in Luzon, specifically the central part of Luzon in the Philippines. As the country faces this unfortunate event, here’s a Super Typhoon Karding update, and to know if your class is suspended, you may continue reading below.
