All Sindh Private Schools & Colleges Association (SPSCA) announced the closure of private schools and colleges tomorrow (Friday) due to unpredictable weather conditions in the province.
According to the details, Haider Ali, chairman of SPSCA, said that it has been decided to close schools in the rain-affected districts. Furthermore, Haider Ali said that the decision to close educational institutions was due to the concern of parents. Private educational institutions will remain open in the districts of Sindh where the weather is fine.
On the other hand, the Sindh government has not yet taken any decision regarding the closure of government schools.
It is believed that a tropical hurricane is forming in the northeastern Arabian Sea, which is likely to bring torrential rains with strong winds in the coastal areas of Sindh and Makran, a coastal region of Balochistan.
According to the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD), the cyclone is 300 km away from Karachi, which could lead to heavy rains and strong winds in coastal areas of Sindh and Makran, including Karachi.
According to PMD notification, “The system is likely to intensify further into a cyclonic storm during the next 24 hours and move northwestwards. Fishermen are advised not to venture in the sea from Thursday (September 30) to Sunday (October 3).”
“Windstorms may cause damages to vulnerable structures,” the notification warned.
