Gujarat Schools Closed: Gujarat Government has declared a holiday for all schools, and colleges today: September 18, 2023. The district administration has announced the closure of educational institutions and ITIs in Narmada District. The authorities have ordered the closure as many villages in the district are facing floods after the release of water from the Narmada Dam.

Be prepared and stay safe!... #Gujarat Region is under an orange alert for heavy rainfall, with the possibility of extremely heavy downpours (more than 204.4 mm) on September 19th….’’

Other than Narmada, rain-fed rivers including Heran, Mahi, Meshru, Orsang, and Panam are swollen because of heavy rainfall which multiplied with the release of water from the dam. As a result, low-lying villages are submerged in the flood.
