COLOMBO (News1st) : Power supply remains suspended to at least 5000 houses as inclement weather battered the country, the power and energy ministry said.

These houses are in the districts of Hambantota, Galle, Kegalle, Ratnapura, ministry spokesman Sulakshana Jayawardena noted.

He said that steps would be taken to restore power supply to these areas at the earliest.

Power supply was cut off to at least 45,000 houses yesterday as heavy rains and winds damaged power lines in several areas.
