The Disaster Management Center stated that 8 spill gates of Deduru Oya have been opened due to heavy showers.

The Center also warned residents living in low-line areas of Bingiriya, Kobeigane and Nikaweratiya in the Kurunegala district to be vigilant on possible floods.

The Disaster Center also said the Puttalam - Mannar road has been closed for traffic as the road at Eluwankulama is inundated.

Meanwhile, the water level of Kothmale reservoir has been increased after two of its sluice gates were closed early this morning.

Three sluice gates of Kothmale reservoir were opened last night due to heavy rain in the hills.

At the same time, Deputy Director Pradeep Kodipillai said water levels of Kelani, Kalu, Walawe, Nilwala and Attanagalu Oya have been increased due to heavy rain.
