MANILA, Philippines (Updated 1:59 p.m.) — Classes and work were suspended on Tuesday, July 17, by local government units and private institutions because of monsoon rains enhanced by "Henry," which has developed into a tropical storm and already left the Philippine area of responsibility, according to the 11 a.m. bulletin of PAGASA.

The heavy downpour has prompted the Palace to suspend around noon classes in public schools and work in government offices in Metro Manila starting 1 p.m. on Tuesday.
