Area residents of Wadinagala Ampara state that earth tremors were experienced in the area twice today.

According to residents the tremors had been accompanied by large noises.

Similar tremors were experienced in the area of Wadinagala, Dewalahinda & Kiulegama yesterday in the Damana Divisional Secretariat.

Meanwhile two minor tremors were recorded in the mobile seismic activity monitors established at Wadinagala in Amapara.

According to Geophysicist Mahinda Senevirathna who is currently on site at Ampara it has been confirmed that these tremors are not generated from within the earth's core.

However according to him it remains to be ascertained if the tremors are being caused due to large scale development activities.
