Water supply disrupted to Colombo areas, suburbs
The supply of water to Colombo and several suburbs has been disrupted following the power outage island wide.
Confirming this, an official of the National Water Supply and Drainage Board said the purification plant at Ambatale has stopped functioning due to the power failure.
An islandwide power outage has been reported, owing to a malfunction in three sub-stations supplying electricity to the National Grid.
Power supply in several areas within Colombo has already returned, while it is expected to be restored in other areas within three hours.
