Deputy commissioners Mullai Mugilan and Kurma Rao, in coordination with the District Disaster Management Authority, have jointly announced the holiday for all Anganwadi centers, government and private primary and high schools, and pre-university colleges in Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts. The authorities have also issued instructions for the public to take necessary precautions to avoid potential hazards associated with the ongoing heavy rains.

Parents have been advised to prevent their children from venturing near low-lying areas filled with water, ponds, riverbanks, and beaches. Fishermen have been cautioned against venturing into the sea during this period. District and taluk level officials have been instructed to remain in their central offices and follow disaster management protocols strictly.

Furthermore, nodal officers appointed by the district administration are required to be on high alert 24×7 and promptly address any public grievances, while maintaining constant communication with the control room at the DC office. Tourists have been advised to refrain from visiting river banks and sea beaches for their own safety. Concerned department officials have been directed to establish grievance centers in each taluk and remain prepared to handle any emergent situations.

In a similar vein, the district collector of Kasargod, K Impashekhar, has declared a holiday for schools and colleges in the district on Friday, July 7. The decision was prompted by widespread submergence of areas within the district and reported instances of landslides. With four consecutive days of heavy rain and strong winds affecting the region, the holiday has been deemed necessary to safeguard the well-being of students and residents.

The authorities continue to monitor the situation closely and have urged the public to stay vigilant and follow safety guidelines during this period of inclement weather.
