Sudden power outages in several areas of the island

Sudden power outages have occurred in several parts of the island, reportedly in Piliyandala, Mount Lavinia, Moratuwa, Athurugiriya and several parts of the Colombo District, and hence Badulla, Nuwara Eliya and Matale Districts.

According to the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB), the outages were due to the breakdown in the power transmission line from the Kotmale Power Plant to the Biyagama Power Plant. The outage was not a willful power cut at all, said Sulakshana Jayawardena, Media Director of the CEB.
