The Department advised fishermen and naval communities to refrain from their activities in the deep and shallow sea areas especially off the coast extending from Mannar to Pottuvil via Colombo, Galle and Hambantota due to the Prevailing windy conditions.

What a forcast. No winds last night and today. How much public funds are spent on the Met Department?

Always way behind and after the damage is done issues warnings.

It seems they are dissappointed after the name they introduced for the last storm was not recognized by some corners.

can you name one government department,which is really professional and hard working?
Mal Saturday, 08 June 2013 08:50 AM
Well this would have been usefull last night before all the fishermen went out! Anyone can issue a warning 12 hours after the storm hit!

How effective they are in providing after effects??? What about weather forecasts??
Fassey Saturday, 08 June 2013 07:58 AM
They are so efficient!

I honestly don't understand what the Met is doing here.We would have been better off had it been completely overhauled. Lack of state of art equipments, lack of skilled work force and lack of budgetary allocations are the direct causes of these tragic events. Will the authority ever listen to these hard working people's grievances. I very much doubt. All are after spinning offs! This is why it is called "Wonder of Asia"

SF Saturday, 08 June 2013 12:00 AM
