Udupi, Jul 8: Deputy Commissioner Dr Vidya Kumari has declared a holiday for all schools and PU colleges across the entire district on Tuesday, July 9, due to widespread rainfall.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a red alert for the coastal region as heavy rains continue to affect Udupi, Dakshina Kannada, and Uttara Kannada districts. The precautionary holiday for anganwadi centers, primary and high schools, and PUCs is aimed at ensuring safety amid the ongoing inclement weather.

The heavy downpour has resulted in an estimated Rs 1.3 crore worth of damage, as reported by district authorities in Udupi.

    Flooding not only in India but all over in the world is going to increase by each year. We wont escape from it will hit first people who are residing in low-lying years. Our planet consists of 3/4 water and rest occupied by the people. Due to over population some of areas which meant of sea reclaimed and constructed buildings and other structures. Where the water will go it will change the route and hit somewhere. Day-by-day sea level is increasing it's a alarming factor. Reason behind in antartica and in other places ice bergs are melted much due to ozone effect. Blamimg on anybody will not make any effect. We cant go against nature. It's after all a god's wish. Survivor the Fittest. It's human error in all respects. Chemicals which used in the name of development hit ozone layer and already made much damage already. So live as accordingly.
