The showery conditions in the South Western parts of the island were expected to peak tomorrow with the start of the Southwestern Monsoon, the Meteorology Department said today.

The Meteorology Department Director General K.H.M.S. Premalal said the department expected an increase in intensity of the rain tomorrow.

“But heavy showers are likely to be reduced over the weekend,” he said.

He said heavy showers between 100-150mm or thunder showers would occur at times in the Western, Southern, Sabaragamuwa and Central and the North-Western Provinces and in the Galle and Matara Districts. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    Why is the Govt shy on appealing for foreign aid ? Is it because of the 'strings attached' or because the Govt knows it's ministers will loot over 75% of the aid ??
