The Ceylon Electricity Board says that an island wide power failure has taken place.

Chairman of the CEB Anura Wijayapala said that the cause for the failure is yet to be determined.

He added that the restoration process would take around 2 to 3 hours and went on to say that the CEB suspects that the cause for this power failure could be a lightening strike onto the one of the Grids.

He however added that as this is not confirmed, an investigation is currently underway to determine the cause for the power failure.
