Apr 24, 2011 11:16:34 AM - itnnews.lk

Holidaymakers have been called upon to exercise caution on the inclement weather prevailing in Nuwara Eliya. The appeal has been made by the Nuwara Eliya District Secretary.

District Secretary D.P.G. Kumarasiri has warned visitors to the mountain resort blessed with salubrious climate, mountains and breathtaking views of valleys, to be cautious when traveling in locations where there is torrential rain, thick fog and areas prone to landslides. Water levels of reservoirs and tanks have risen due to the heavy rain. As such he called upon the visitors to refrain from reaching them. The District Secretary also warned visitors to locations such as Horton Plains, where thick fog was being experienced.
