The met department says intense lightning accompanied by thundershowers can be experienced in western, Sabaragamuwa, southern, central, uva and north-western provinces as well as in Mannar and Polonnaruwa districts during the night.

It further notes that the wind speed in the sea area extending from Batticaloa to Matara via Pottuvil could increase up to 70-80 kilometres per hour resulting in very rough seas during thunder showers.

The disaster management centre urges the fishing and naval communities remain vigilant in this regard.

Meanwhile 240 houses were severely damaged by strong winds experienced in the Ratnapura district yesterday.
