1-hr power cuts possible tonight - CEB

There will be one-hour long scattered power cuts today (07) between 5.30pm - 9.30 pm in many areas, the Ceylon Electricity Board announces.

The CEB says that this is due furnace oil not provided to them by the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation.

Earlier today, the CEB warned that there will be occasional power outages in several areas today (07) due to a generator failure at the Kelanitissa power plant and high demand for electricity.
