According to the Sri Lanka government, a severe drought situation is reported in Ampara, Polonnaruwa, Trincomalee, Hambantota, and Monaragala Districts causing a water shortage for public use.
Considering the situation, the Sri Lanka Ministry of Disaster Management has taken steps to supply the required water for these areas through temporary tanks.
A 24-hour hotline, ‘117’ has been introduced for those areas to inform problems related to the water shortage, said the Assistant Director of the Disaster Management Center Pradeep Kodippili.
