There would be unexpected exceptionally strong winds in the Northern, North Central, North-Western provinces and in the Trincomalee and Matale districts, the Department of Meteorology said a while ago issuing a red notice.

The strong winds may go up to 70-80 kmp/h. However, in other places wind speeds were likely to reach up to 55-65 kmp/h, it warned.
