Two spill gates of Laxapana reservoir have been opened due to heavy rains received over the past few days, the Disaster Management Centre said today (12).

The DMC requests the residents who live downstream of Kelani River as well as people who use river water for their daily needs to be vigilant in this regard.

‘Those who bathe in rivers and those who take sea baths must also be watchful of the prevailing weather condition,’ the DMC added.
