The meteorology department states that the Very Severe Cyclonic Storm “Hudhud” in the Bay of Bengal entered the Indian land area this afternoon and it will be weaken gradually.

Cyclone Hudhud is pounding the eastern Indian coast, causing extensive damage and prompting the evacuation of some 300 thousand people.

The cyclone, classed "very severe", brought winds of 205 kilo meters per hour, as it passed over the coast near the city of Visakhapatnam.

However under the influence of the system, increase of wind speed over the island and in the surrounding sea areas is still possible today.

The roughness of the northern sea area is likely and strong winds will be reduced by tomorrow.

Showers or thunder showers will occur at several places in the Western, Sabaragamuwa and Central provinces and in the Galle and Matara districts.

Duty meteorologist Nadee Senail requests the general public to take adequate precautions to minimize the damages caused by lightning activities.
