There is a possibility that near shore sea areas off the coast extending from Beruwala to Hambantota via Galle, may experience surges due to the effect of swell waves, having 2.0 – 3.0m height (this is not the height of nearshore waves).
Naval and fishing communities and those who are living in coastal areas are requested to be vigilant in this regard.
