Geological Survey and Mines Bureau stated that the earthquakes reported from few areas in Ampara district had subsided.
Chairman of GSMB Professor N. G. Vijayananda stated that no earthquake or noise had been reported from the area after the 15th of this month.
Therefore 2 of the 3 seismographs that were installed in the area have been removed due to this reason.
Continuous earthquakes were reported from Wadinagala, Kiwulegama and Dewalahinda areas in Ampara district.
Sometimes the quakes occurred multiple times a day along with loud noises.
Therefore a group of officials from GSMB installed seismographs for further research.
Different opinions were voiced about the earthquakes. However, GSMB stated that a definite cause for the quakes were not determined as yet.
