Owing to heavy downpour, all educational institutions in Valparai were declared holiday from July 9 to 11.
As the rains have subsided, the schools were re-opened after a three day break.
Most of the tea factories went non-operational, as tea plucking works came to a halt due to torrential rains. The tea workers resumed work from today.
However, they are concerned that such heavy downpours could trigger more bugs, making it difficult for them to work.
