Earth mound slip on to the Hatton-Salankanda main road

Movement of traffic has come to a halt following an earth mound slip on to the Hatton-Salankanda main road.

The earth mound has slipped on to the road in the Hadley Estate area in Hatton. Around 100 members of thirty families living on the upper area of the location have been directed to secure areas.

Norwood Pradeshiya Sabha Chairman Kulandavel Ravi said that they are being provided with the necessary relief. The road is now being cleared.

In the meantime, heavy damages have been caused to high tension power lines as a result of the strong winds experienced in the Central Hills. As such our correspondents reported that power supplies to many areas had been affected.
