The Meteorology Department reports that the severe cyclonic storm “Lehar” in the Bay of Bengal is centered around 75okm to the northeast of Mullaitivu and is likely to move northwestward direction.

The Department notes that as such deep sea areas beyond 300km away from the coast extending from Jaffna to Trincomalee will be very rough, as the winds may increase to more than 70 kilometres per hour.

Naval and fishing communities have been requested to be vigilant in this regard.
