    September 02, 2019

    The Navy on 30th August sprang into action to remove branches and twigs of trees and debris collected at the underside of Wakwella bridge in Galle.As a result of heavy downpour reported from many parts of the country these days, the water levels of rivers have swollen multi fold. Accordingly, the underside of the Wakwella bridge across the Gin ganga has also been blocked with large bamboo trees, branches of trees and debris. In this backdrop, the Navy rose to the occasion to clear the blockage averting a possible flood situation which could affect people residing in houses close to the river banks.

    Under the directives of Commander of the Navy, Vice Admiral Piyal De Silva and supervision of Commander Southern Naval Area, Rear Admiral Kassapa Paul, a team of Navy divers along with naval personnel attached to the Southern Naval Command carried out this task successfully. It was also supported by people in the area. Navy is kept ready to respond to any flood situation that could be possible due to prevailing inclement weather.
