Under the influence of the cyclonic storm ‘Nilam’, South-western parts of the island ( Western, Central, Sabaragamuwa and Southern provinces) are receiving  heavy rainfalls  and it is likely to continue for next 09 hours, the Met Department said.

It said that  strong winds are also likely at times in these areas. However, it said that the cyclonic storm “Nilam” is moving away from the island and there is no direct effect to the weather over the island.

But as the strong winds which are feeding  into the system and active rain bearing cloud presence in the sea area, the winds can be strengthen occasionally (up to 60 km/h ) over island and surrounding sea areas until the system weaken.

    It is raining harshly im the United States of America also. Some people do not have power, because the trees have fallen on the Power lines. There Is a Hurrycane called hurrycane Sandy. We rarely have power outages and now we a driuds similar to Sri Lanka. When I was in Sri Lanka over the summer people kept on claiming that they do not have any rain, so they should be quiet now. via DM Android App
