APCEDI Alert Tropical 01B#2: Tropical cyclone bearing down on Sri Lanka

From Joint Typhoon Warning Center

Tropical Cyclone O1B has formed off the southeast coast of Sri Lanka. This is a minimal strength cyclone, but given the past tsunami damage along with recent flooding, this is an extremely serious situation. Given that its moving slowly and erratically much of southern and eastern Sri Lanka could receive very heavy rain causing widespread coastal and inland flooding.

Tidal surge flooding is also possible. This will be accompanied by heavy seas and strong, gusty winds. Heavy rainfall is occurring in hard-hit Ampara District and will continue across much of Southern Sri Lanka today and tomorrow.

All tsunami relief personnel should monitor the situation with this storm and take necessary measures for themselves and their communities in which they are working. Once the storm moves across Southern Sril Lanka, it could pose a threat to both Tamil Nadu and Kerala States in India further complicating relief efforts there.
