ALL schools in the Central Division were forced to close yesterday following flash floods, strong winds and heavy rain.

USP also had to shut down operations.

An Information Ministry statement clarified that the Education Ministry would monitor the weather closely before providing an update on school reopening dates.

"School heads are requested to arrange the safe return of students to their homes," the ministry instructed in a statement.

Meanwhile USP students were issued a directive from Vice-Chancellor Dr Esther Williams, saying it was necessary for the institution to shut down.

"Due to the adverse weather conditions and no electricity in most parts of the university, the university will be closed today (yesterday)," she said in a statement.

"The situation will be assessed closely for the next two days and you will be notified accordingly," she said.
