The Colombo-Batticaloa Road has gone under water with the opening of sluice gates of the Mahaweli Reservoirs.
Sluice gates of the Mahaweli Reservoirs had to be opened with heavy rains lashing the Central Hills. As a result, our Polonnaruwa correspondent said that the Colombo-Batticaloa Road at the Gallella area was submerged to a height of three feet.
In the meantime, the Polonnaruwa District ws experience heavy rain again from the early hours of today. As such, water levels of the tanks in the District are on the rise. The Polonnaruwa Irrigation Engineer said that if the rains continue, floods may occur again in the area.
