Heat forces schools to remain closed

A soaring mercury level has forced the authorities to keep schools and colleges closed in Guwahati.

Kamrup (Metro) district administration has asked all schools and colleges to remain closed on Friday and Saturday because of unprecedented heat.

The Goalpara district administration has also followed the suit asking the schools and college goers to keep at home to get rid of the sweltering heat on Friday and Saturday.

Notably, parts of Assam have been burning in 40 degree Celsius for the last couple of days. The meteorological centre in Guwahati has predicted hardly any respite during the next couple of days.
