‘FANI’ moving away from Sri Lanka

The Extremely Severe Cyclonic Storm ‘FANI’ (pronounced as FONI) over West-central Bay of Bengal to the Northeast of Sri Lanka, was located near latitude 18.6N, Longitude 85.2E at 02.30 a.m. of 03rd May 2019, about 1140 km northeast of Jaffna, the Department of Meteorology says.

It is likely to move north-northeastwards while moving away from the island, hence the affect from this system to the island will gradually reduce.

Strong winds up to 50 kmph can be expected over the island, particularly in Northern, North central, North-western, Uva and Southern provinces and in Trincomalee districts.
