KSA – 13 people reported dead due to heavy rainfall, While slippery snow and glassy ice may force schools to shut in more wintry countries, Saudi Arabia’s rainy downpour on Saturday has been enough reason for classes to be suspended.
Schools in five different Saudi provinces will be shut, the Ministry of Education said on Saturday, due to rainy weather conditions.
Ministry of Education Spokesman Mohammed Al-Dakheeni said the suspension will affect the provinces of Quwaiyiah, Dawadmi, Hota, Hariq and Kharj, reported the Saudi Press Agency (SPA).
“The suspension’s decision was taken due to a continuation of rains in these provinces,” said the ministry’s statement carried by SPA.
Al Arabiya’s correspondent said the decision is a precautionary measure taken to cope with poor weather conditions that had hit the Kingdom since Thursday.
Possible heavy rainfall and floods kept the kingdom on high alert levels over the past few days in preparation for the expected weather changes.
