SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Public schools in San Francisco and Oakland and some private schools in the Bay Area will close Thursday because of a powerful storm expected to hit Northern California.

San Francisco Unified School District Superintended Richard A. Carranza said Wednesday he is ordering the closure because he doesn’t want to risk students getting injured when trying to get to school Thursday morning.

Carranza says there could be a lot of staff absences and power outages that could affect the district’s ability to supervise and feed students.

The National Weather Service says the strongest winds will hit the San Francisco Bay Area between 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Thursday.

The Oakland Unified School District also ordered all schools closed on Thursday.

All Catholic Schools in San Francisco will also close.
