Naval and fishing communities cautioned

The Department of Meteorology today issued a weather advisory for heavy rain and strong winds in the deep and shallow sea areas off the coast extending from Chilaw to Matara via Colombo and Galle.

Due to the active cloudiness in the Sea area to the West and South-west of Sri Lanka, the possibility for heavy showers/thundershowers and sudden roughness, associated with sudden increase of wind speed (up to 70-80 kmph) in the sea areas is high, it said.

Naval and fishing communities are also requested to be vigilant in this regards.
