The Geological Mines and Survey Bureau (GMSB) said they suspect the series of tremors reported from Ampara within the past few weeks, to be man-made.

GMSB Chairman, Dr. N P Wijayananda speaking to Daily Mirror said, “We suspect the tremors to be man-made based on the information we have received so far through the seismic monitoring systems installed in the areas few weeks ago. The development projects that are being carried out in the North and East could be causing these tremors as they involve deep piling. However, we have not reached a final conclusion and therefore we will be continuing the investigations.”

A series of tremors were reported form the areas of Wadinagala, Dewalakanda and Damana, Ampara for the past few weeks, its latest reported just a few days ago. Dr. Wijayananda said these tremors are being reported according to a certain pattern. (LP)
