Hudhud: Schools in Bastar to shut
Raipur, Oct 12: Educational institutions in the Bastar region of Chhattisgarh have been ordered to stay closed tomorrow as the state gears up to deal with the fierce weather system unleashed by cyclonic storm Hudhud as it moves inland. Hudhud is expected to cross over into Chhattisgarh early in the morning tomorrow.

According to Bastar Division Commissioner RP Jain, after Hudhud made landfall in Andhra Pradesh this afternoon, the southern part of Chhattisgarh has been experiencing rain and strong winds, although no serious damage has so far been reported in the inclement weather.

The state-level sports meet in Chhattisgarh, which was slated to be held on Oct. 14, has been put off in view of the storm. Jain said that all the necessary arrangements have been made to deal with any emergencies arising out of Hudhud hitting the state with alerts having been issued to the people about staying indoors while the weather continues to be rough.
