The Met Department says that as the Ockhi cyclone moves further away from the island, the low-pressure zone near the Andaman Islands is moving closer to the island.

The low-pressure zone is expected to take a path towards India.

The Disaster Management Centre said that many of those who had displaced by adverse weather conditions were now returning to their homes.

Assistant Director of the Disaster Management Centre Pradeep Kodippilli said that relief efforts are continuing.

Over 100,000 people in 16 districts have been affected by adverse weather.

Meanwhile, a mosquito eradication programme in schools has been launched in view of the GCE Ordinary Level examination scheduled to commence on the 12th of this month.

Meanwhile, the Irrigations Department said that water levels of Kalu, Gin, and Nilwala which had reached spill levels, are now receding.

The landslide warning issued by the National Building Research Organization for 6 districts due to adverse weather has been extended.

Accordingly, the landslide warning issued for Ratnapura, Galle, Badulla, Hambantota, Kalutara, and Matara has been extended till 9.30 am tomorrow.

The Met Department stated that showers or thundershowers will occur at times in the Northern, North-Central, Eastern, and Uva provinces.
