The Disaster Management Centre says that number of lowlands in the Kalutara, Galle and Matara districts were inundated yesterday due to the rising water levels of the Kalu, Gin and Nilwala rivers.

The deputy Director of the Disaster Management Centre Pradeep Kodippili requested the public to remain vigilant about earth slips and landslides.

The meteorology department states that Showers or thundershowers will occur over most parts of the island particularly during the afternoon and night.

Heavy falls more than 100 mili meters are also likely at some places.

Showers will occur in the Western, Southern and North-western provinces during the morning hours as well.

There may be temporary localized strong winds during thundershowers.

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