Those in low lying areas should exercise caution: DMC

The Disaster Management Centre requested those living in low lying areas to exercise caution today (13) as such areas may be prone to minor flooding.

This warning was issued after the water levels of the Kalu, Nilwala and Gin Ganga began to rise due to today’s inclement weather.

Bulathsinhala, Palinda Nuwara, Millaniya, Horana, Dodangoda, and the areas under the Kalutara Pradeshiya Sabha Divisional Secretariat are among the locales which are at risk of flooding.

The Meteorological Department also stated earlier today that showers or thundershowers will occur at times in the Sabaragamuwa, Central, Western, Southern and Northwestern provinces.

These weather patterns are expected to continue for the next few days.
