The Department of Meteorology issued a weather advisory this morning as the Severe Cyclonic storm ”AMPHAN” further intensified into a Very Severe Cyclonic Storm.
The cyclonic storm centered over the Central part of South Bay of Bengal and neighborhood, about 740 km North-east of Trincomalee, at 02.30 a.m. of 18th May.
It very likely intensifies into an Extremely Severe Cyclonic Storm during the next 06 hours and likely to move north-north-eastwards towards the west Bengal coast during 20th May.
Due to the influence of the system, the prevailing showery condition over the island particularly in the south-western part is likely to continue further.
Very heavy showers above 150mm are likely at some places.
Wind speed can be increased up to (50-60) kmph at times over the island.
Showers or thundershowers will occur in Southern, Western, Sabaragamuwa, Central and North-western provinces with isolated very heavy showers exceeding 150mm.
