Power outages expected islandwide
Further power outages are expected across the island today (06), according the Ministry of Power and Energy.
The Ceylon Electricity Board Chairman, Eng. Vijitha Herath said that these disruptions are expected due to the prevailing inclement weather, and the CEB is looking for solutions to the issue.
Power supply disruptions already occurred at several areas around the island due to bad weather. The Meteorological Department has issued an amber alert, as it expects the wind speeds and rainfall to intensify over the course of the day.
However, these conditions are not expected to cause delays in the counting of votes and release of election results.
