Minor tremors in Colombo, suburbs

CDN / 01APR2005

SEVERAL minor earth tremors were reported in the City of Colombo and its suburbs from 8.40 a.m. to 10.55 p.m. yesterday, Geological and Mines Bureau Director Sarath Weerawarnakula said.

He said tremors were felt in high rising buildings in certain areas in Colombo Fort, Hendala and Wattala. He said these tremors are of insignificant nature and are commonly sporadic in countries surrounding Sri Lanka. There is no reason to panic, he said.

Weerawarnakula said the Bureau took immediate steps to make the people aware of this occurrence and since similar tremors were not reported from any other part of the globe, the Bureau cannot be certain about the epicentre.

He said the Government has established an Interim Committee to be alert on earthquakes and similar natural disasters likely to affect Sri Lanka. This committee took prompt action to make the people aware of the tremor.
