Alappuzha : All educational institutions in water-logged Kuttanad will remain closed for the day.
Professional colleges however are on their own to decide on the holiday.
Some schools outside Kuttanad taluk too have declared holiday.
Several educational institutions in Alappuzha served as relief camps in the water-logged district following torrential rains.
Around 9,000 people continue to be retained by these centres, more than 7,000 being district natives themselves.
Though rains have mildened in the past two days, water has hardly receded and several parts continue to be submerged.
