Cyclone ‘Thane’ still stationary off Jaffna

The cyclonic storm ‘THANE’ over the Bay of Bengal remained stationary and was centered about 600km Northeast of Jaffna  at 08.00 am today (28th). This system is likely to intensify further and move North-westward from its center (towards the Indian east coast).

The department of meteorology said that shallow and deep sea areas off the coast extending from Mannar to Trincomalee via Jaffna will be very rough with very strong winds and intermittent rain. Fishing and naval community is further advised to refrain from maritime activities in these seas.

A few showers accompanied by fairly strong winds may prevail at times in the Eastern, Northern and North-central provinces.
