Severe weather advisory valid for the next 24 hours was issued by the Met Department at 5.00 p.m. today. It said heavy rains accompanied by strong winds could be expected in the South-Western parts of the country.

The department advised Naval and fishing communities to be vigilant as deep and shallow seas off the coastal areas extending from Mannar to Pottuvil via Colombo and Galle would be rough and dangerous with strong southwesterly winds increasing up to 70 kilometres an hour.

It said showers would occur in the Western, Sabaragamuwa, Central and Southern Provinces and in the Puttalam and Kurunegala districts while monsoonal winds would strengthen over the island especially along the western slopes of the central hills.

    None can predict about the happenings even the very next second. There is a saying "Man proposes, God disposes".

    Now the Met Dept will give warning even if there is little rain going to come. This is to escape punishment. In India And Bangladesh all the fishing boat entering points they have color flag warning to warn the fishermen. Why don't they adopt this here?

    It is stil the same Met Department. The same people and the same equipment. So, this forecast too may not be correct. Is this the end of the fishing industry in Sri Lanka?
