Sunday, 12 May 2013 - 12:46


The tornado named Mahasen generated in the Bay of Bengalle is currently said to be 750 Km’s away from Mullaitivu.

Owing to this the coastline from Jaffna to Hambanthota is expected to become turbulent bringing with it gale winds and strong showers.

Director General of the Department of Meteorology H.S. Kariyawasam speaking to our news team expressed further views in this regard.


Meanwhile Mahasen is expected to intensify during the next 24 hours causing severe rain fall in South India.
