The met department says that the sea area extending from Matara, to Batticaloa via Pottuvil and from Puttalam to Trincomalee via Kankasanturai and Mullaitivu can be very rough at times as the wind speed can increase up to 70-80 kilometres per hour.

The department further notes that it is dangerous to carry out fishing activities in these sea areas and requests the naval communities to be vigilant in this regard.

Furthermore the deputy director for search operations in the ministry of fisheries Padmapriya Tissera said that those engaged in fishing activities should be equipped with life jackets and communication equipment connecting them to the ministry’s search operation unit.

Meanwhile the current rainy conditions have increased the water level of reservoirs of the ministry of irrigation and water supply by 26 percent.
