The Disaster Management Centre says the landslide warning issued to Nuwara Elia, Badulla and Kandy districts, is still in effect.

Deputy Director and the Media Spokesperson of the DMC Pradeep Kodippili said although showers have reduced in a number of districts, the water levels of reservoirs continue to remain high.

He added that spill gates of several reservoirs have be opened and therefore requested the public residing in low-lying areas to remain vigilant.

The Department of Meteorology meanwhile has predicted several spells of showers in the Eastern and Uva provinces and in Polonnaruwa and Hambanthota districts.

The Met Department said showers or thundershowers may occur at several places in the Central, Sabaragamuwa and Western provinces and in Galle and Matara districts.
