Kalma lang, kids!
Mayor Carmelita “Menchie” Abalos sowed calm on social media as frenzied students in Mandaluyong barraged her with requests to cancel classes ahead of Typhoon Ompong.
The politiko had been receiving messages and Facebook tags as early as Wednesday, Sept. 12 even if reports said the storm won’t be felt until Friday.
“Sa mga nagta-tag/mention sa akin sa mga weather reports, easy lang kayo naka monitor din kami. Stay safe,” the politiko said to shut them down.
Classes were eventually suspended on Friday as the country braced for the typhoon.
