Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, September 22) — The Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) announced suspension for all classes for Friday, Sept. 22 due to the heavy smog surrounding cities in the area.

State volcanologists said the smog over Metro Manila is not caused by the emissions from Taal Volcano but cautioned the public to still wear masks and avoid the outdoors.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said the haze covering the capital region, Calabarzon, and some parts of Central Luzon are smog formation from “small particles trapped close to the surface due to the presence of a thermal inversion, high humidity, and calm wind conditions.”
