At the same time, People who live in other Divisional Secretariat Divisions of Horana, Kalutara, Beruwala, Millaniya, Madurawala, and Panadura should be vigilant in cutting failures.

Sri Lanka’s Met Department said the showery condition over South-western and North-western parts of the island is likely to enhance during the next 24 hours.

Showers or thundershowers will occur at times at Sabaragamuwa, Central, Western, Southern, and North-western provinces.

Heavy falls above 100 mm can be expected at some places in Western, Sabaragamuwa, and Central provinces and in Galle and Matara districts.

Showers or thundershowers will occur at several places elsewhere during the evening or night.

Authorities have reached a decision not to allow any multi-day fishing vessel to out to seas from multiple fishing ports due to the development of an adverse low-pressure area in the northern part of the Arabian Sea.

Kalyani Hewapathirana, the Director of Operations at the Fisheries Department speaking to News 1st said the low-pressure area is creating a very dangerous weather situation and the multi-day fishing vessels will not be permitted to ext the Beruwala, Dikowita, Pitipana, Kalpitiya, and Myladi with effect from Thursday (13).

When issuing permits for multi-day vessels from other ports on the island, the travel permission will be granted only after advising not to proceed towards the longitude 77 (77 E) for the next three days, she said.
