A total of 171 schools in several districts in Kedah were reported to have been damaged by last Friday’s storm, said state exco for education and human resources Salmee Said.

Salmee said based on reports received as at 10pm yesterday, the affected schools are in Langkawi, Pendang, Sik, Baling, Kota Setar, Kubang Pasu, Kuala Muda, Yan, Padang Terap and Kulim-Bandar Baharu.

"The damage, which included broken roofs and ceilings, will be repaired immediately, but (some) will take one month to complete,” she said in a brief statement to Bernama tonight.

Salmee said the schooling session would not be badly affected as schools are having their Hari Raya Aidiladha break until Aug 17.
