High waves alert

The Meteorology Department yesterday issued an advisory for high waves and coastal inundation to sea areas extending from Puttalam to Potuvil via Colombo, Galle and Hambantota. The advisory is valid until 2.00 p.m. tomorrow (09). 

The Department stated, "There is a possibility that near shore sea areas off the coast extending from Puttalam to Potuvil via Colombo, Galle and Hambantota, may experience surges due to the effect of swell waves, having 2-2.5 meters." 

However these waves have no effect to the land areas, the Department observed. 

"Above mentioned areas can be fairly rough at times. Naval and fishing communities and those who are living in coastal areas are also requested to be vigilant in this regard." the Department noted.
