Dry spell over Uva, despite rains in other parts


Though heavy rains had been experienced during the past few weeks in the Western, Southern, Sabaragamuwa and several other provinces, the Uva Province continues to experience dry weather conditions. Sources said that due to the acute dry weather conditions, water levels in the Mahaweli and Loggalla rivers had receded drastically. They stated that even waterfalls like Diyaluma and Dunhinda had also begun to recede due to the heat wave currently prevalent in the Province.
