Advisory for heavy rain issued

An advisory for heavy rain was issued to several provinces, which is valid until 10am May 14.

According to the advisory, "the showery condition over South-western and North-western parts of the island is likely to enhance during next 24 hours. Showers or thundershowers will occur at times at Sabaragamuwa, Central, Western, Southern and North western provinces. Heavy falls above 100mm can be expected at some places in Western, Sabaragamuwa and Central provinces and in Galle and Matara districts. Showers or thundershowers will occur at several places elsewhere during the evening or night."

General public is kindly requested to take adequate precautions to minimize damages caused by temporary localized strong winds and lightning during thundershowers.
