Sun, Nov 22, 2020, 11:26 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 22, Colombo: The Disaster Management Center (DMC) has advised fishermen to refrain from fishing in the Northern and Eastern seas until further notice due to the prevailing adverse weather conditions.

Pradeep Kodippili, Deputy Director and Media Spokesman of the Disaster Management Center, said that fishing vessels already engaged in fishing in the Northern and Eastern Seas should be diverted to safer areas as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, the Meteorology Department forecast issued this morning said the Low Pressure area in the South-East of Bay of Bengal is expected to intensify further into a depression during the next 24-48 hours.

“It is likely to move west-northwestwards towards Eastern and Northern coast of Sri Lanka on 24th of November. As such, intermittent showers/thundershowers, strong or very strong gusty winds and rough or very rough seas can be expected in the sea areas in between 05N-12N and 80E-90E during next few days,” it said

The Meteorology Department requested the fishing and naval community to be attentive regarding future forecasts issued in this regard.
