Fiji Sun - - World News -

Colombo: Heavy rains lash­ing for a sec­ond day on Sun­day with over 100 mm rain­falls and gust­ing winds have flooded streets in the Sri Lankan cap­i­tal Colombo cre­at­ing ma­jor traf­fic jams while the De­part­ment of Me­te­o­rol­ogy pre­dicted more thun­der­show­ers over most parts of the is­land. The Me­te­o­rol­ogy De­part­ment said the low pres­sure area in the vicin­ity of Sri Lanka, now lo­cated over Bat­ticaloa coast was likely to in­ten­sify fur­ther in to a de­pres­sion and likely to con­tinue af­fect­ing the weather over the coun­try and sur­round­ing sea ar­eas.
