Colombo (News 1st): The Department of Irrigation said the water levels of the Kalu ganga and Gin ganga, which rose due to the heavy rainfall experienced in the South Western parts of the Island yesterday (August 13), have gradually reduced. The Meteorological Department says prevailing windy and showery conditions are expected to continue today (August 14).

There is a possibility for the sudden increase of wind speeds up to 60 kmph over the island, particularly over the Western, Southern, Sabaragamuwa, North-Central, North-Western, Northern and Central provinces and in the Trincomalee district. Showers or thundershowers will occur at times in Western, Sabaragamuwa, Central, Southern and North-western provinces.

Heavy rainfalls exceeding 100 mm are predicted at some places in Central and Sabaragamuwa provinces and in Galle, Matara and Kalutara districts. Showers or thundershowers will occur at few places in Mullaitivu, Ampara and Batticaloa districts after 2.00pm.

Meanwhile, the Landslide Warnings issued to the Ratnapura, Kegelle and Nuwara Eliya Districts are still in effect. The National Building Research Organization’s Dr Gamini Jayatissa told locals to remain vigilant for possible landslides.
