The Meteorology Department says that by now the deep depression prevailing in the Bay of Bengal has come from the island's East close to the Mullaitiv coastal belt.

Meteorologist in charge H S Kariyawasam said that as a result of this rain could be experienced today and tomorrow.

However our news team also inquired about this from the Indian Meteorology Department's Chennai office.

A Chennai office spokesman said that this cyclone will proceed between  India's Naagapattanam and Aandrapradesh Nallur.

Meanwhile obstruction to transport has cropped up due to an earth slip at Kalukaele on the Hatton-Nuwara Eliya main road.

Nuwara Eliya District Secretary D. P. G. Kumarasiri requests that alternative routes be used due to this.

In addition the Secretary said that the two upper Kotmale reservoir sluice gates opened yesterday still remain open.

However President Mahinda Rajapaksa has instructed Disaster Management Minister Mahinda Amaraweera to take every action for providing relief for the people with regard the disaster situation that has now occurred.
