Signs of a Hurricane within the next few hours!

The MET Department said the deep depression west of the island is currently around 300 km west of Colombo.

It is expected to develop into a hurricane within the next few hours and travel towards the Wayamba region of the country in a westerly direction.

Due to this development, there could be heavy showers and winds especially in the South Western regions.

Heavy winds could be experienced in the shallow and deep sea areas in the Western and Southern coastal areas while the winds could reach around 90-100 km at times.
