Sri Lankan officials say the country is prepared to face the El Niño weather phenomenon in the last quarter of 2015 and take precautions based on the experience of the recent past.

Science Dev Net reported that Temperatures have remained above average this year and a prolonged dry spell has left over 200,000 in the Northern Province thirsting for safe drinking water.

However, some assessments also predict that South Asia was likely to receive above average rains in late 2015.

 

El Nino is caused by the rising sea temperatures.

Director General of the MET Department Lalith Chandrapala stated that more rains can be expected in October and November.
