Unofficial power cuts experienced in most parts of Sri Lanka have now been made official with a set timetable.
The power cuts are being imposed as water levels at hydro catchment areas are not sufficient and the CEB is unable to meet the electricity demand.
Accordingly, the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) said that power cuts will be imposed from tomorrow around the island.
Electricity will be disrupted from 08.30 am to 11.30 in some areas and 11.30 am to 02.30 pm in some areas as well as from 02.30 pm to 05.30 pm in some areas and 06.30 pm to 07.30 pm in some areas, 07.30 pm to 08.30 pm or 08.30 pm to 09.30 pm. (Colombo Gazette)
