The National Disaster Management Centre says that about 250 persons have been displaced in Kandy, Dimbula-pathana and Kandapola due to the heavy rain in the central hills.

Deputy Media Director Sarath Laalkumaara told our news team that these persons had thus been afflicted as a result of the overflow of the reservoirs in these areas due to the heavy rains experienced in the area last night.

Meanwhile duty meteorologist Preethika Jayakody stated that showers are expected today as well.
