Electricity supply was disrupted to several houses after trees had fallen off due to the strong winds that swept across several areas last night.

Power and Renewable Energy Ministry spokesman Sulakshana Jayawardena told the Hiru news team that power outages were reported from Dambulla, Matale, Vavuniya, Nikaweratiya, Puttalam, Dehiwala, Narahenpita, Mathugama, Homagama, Avissawella, Kaduwela and Weligama areas.

He also stated that steps will be taken to restore the electricity supply in those areas promptly. Meanwhile, Katunayake airport authorities have taken steps to direct two aircrafts that arrived at the Katunayake International Airport to the Mattala Airport early this morning due to inclement weather.

Qatar's QR 662 flight from Doha and Air Arabia's G9503 from Sharjah were the two aircrafts diverted to Mattala.

At present, the weather conditions around the Katunayake airport have improved and it is reported that the aircraft operations have returned to normalcy.
