The electricity supply to some 45,000 people living in several areas in the Kegalle, Ratnapura, Galle, Matara, Hambantota and Kurunegala Districts had been disrupted due to heavy rains, the Ministry of Power and Energy said.

Ministry's Spokesman and Director (Development) Sulakshana Jayawardena said the areas such as Rambukkana, Deraniyagala, Ruwanwella, Kahawatte, Elapatha, Kuruwita, Ambalangoda, Baddegama, Hakmana, Kamburupitiya, Tangalle and Kuliyapitiya were subject to power disruption.

The CEB workers are in the process of restoring the electricity supply, he said.

    Heavy rains are not uncommon in Sri Lanka. This means that the supply lines, transformers and other technical systems are either of poor quality or poorly protected against the weather. A pitiful CEB management.

    What a surprising country if there is heavy rain, then we do not have electricity. Why can't we use proper equipments and the system which can use even under heavy rains.
