SUVA, Feb. 19 (Xinhua) -- The South Pacific island nation of Samoa extended on Wednesday temporary closure of all public schools until Monday next week.

According to Samoa Observer, Samoan Ministry of Education, Sports and Culture made such announcement on Wednesday evening because the Samoa Meteorological Office warned the island nation to have more bad weather in the coming days.

The Samoa Meteorological Office said that the bad weather which is expected to bring more heavy rain and strong winds is the result of an active cloud band remaining over the country.

The Meteorological Office has issued wind warning, heavy rain warning, flood warnings in effect for all of Samoa.

Over the past days, a tropical disturbance was hitting some Pacific island nations such as Samoa, Solomon Islands and Tuvalu by bringing damaging winds and heavy rain. In Samoa, the heavy rain had brought flooding to parts of capital city of Apia and nearby villages and caused some rivers to burst their banks.

All public schools in Samoa have been ordered closed on Tuesday and Wednesday. Enditem
