Berhampur: The Ganjam administration on Thursday announced holiday for all schools and anganwadi centres in the district tomorrow in the wake of heavy rainfall forecast.
However, the teachers have been directed not to take leave on Friday and help people affected by possible flash flood situation in the district.
District Collector Vijay Amruta Kulange has asked the headmasters and headmistress of schools to suspend classes and take measures for the safety of the students.
All schools and Anganwadi centres will be used as shelters for people affected by rain, he said.
The decision came in view of Red Alert issued by the India Meteorological Department (IMD) for four districts including Ganjam.
Ganjam is likely to witness heavy to very heavy rainfall tomorrow under the impact of a low pressure.
