Schools across flood-hit Kerala have opened on Wednesday following the end of Onam vacation.
“The government is trying to open all the schools by tomorrow itself. However, there are some problems in areas like Kuttanad and Aluva in Kochi, which is expected to be sorted out in a day or two,” said Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Tuesday.
However, several schools that were used to shelter the flood victims in Paravur and Aluva in Ernakulam and parts of Alappuzha district will remain closed for three more days.
