Bihar’s government schools will be closed till June 15 due to extreme heat

The state education department in Bihar issued an order on Monday to close all government-run schools until June 15 due to the extreme weather conditions.

Due to the extreme heatwave that is now occurring in the state and the additional alert that the IMD has issued, the department has decided to close all state-run government schools from June 11 to June 15. Teachers will also have vacations until June 15 due to the closure of schools, according to the education department’s decree.

The state will see “severe heatwave” conditions for the next three to four days, according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), which also issued a red warning for the state’s northern and southern districts until June 14.

“Heatwave to severe heatwave conditions are very likely in the southern and northern parts of the state until June 14,” the IMD’s Patna Center said in a statement. It has been recommended that people stay indoors since extended sun exposure may cause ailments linked to the heat.

On Monday, the temperature reached above 44 degrees Celsius in nine places. The highest temperature of 45.9 degrees Celsius was recorded in Buxar and Bhojpur.

A number of other places reported temperatures higher than 44 degrees Celsius: Buxar Arwal (45.7 degrees), Dehri (45.6 degrees), Gaya (45.1 degrees), Aurangabad and Bikramganj (45.5 degrees apiece), and Nawada (44.9 degrees).
