The Met Department states that the existing rainy weather would intensify in the next few days.

Acting Director General of the department, Athula Karunanayake told our news team that the turbulence in the lower atmosphere of the South Eastern zone of the Bay of Bengal would be the cause for this rough weather.

Meanwhile, a sinkhole was created at Rila-wanguwa near the 7th Kilometer Post due to heavy rain in Minneriya last night.

Police said that traffic on Habarana - Polonnaruwa road is disturbed following this disaster situation.

At the same time, traffic came to a standstill on the A7 road from Thalawakelle to Nuwara Eliya via Despot after a soil embankment collapsed.

It is reported that the Road Development Board has been clearing the road since this morning.

Meanwhile, the National Building Research Organization has warned of possible landslides in Matale, Kurunegala, Kandy and Nuwara Eliya districts for the next 24 hours.
