Ongoing flood warnings have been issued to some parts of Sri Lanka along with landslide warnings in the districts of Kurunegala, Monaragala, Badulla, Ratnapura, Kandy, Kegalle and Nuwara Eliya.  U.S. citizens residing in or travelling around Sri Lanka should monitor local news and reports from the Sri Lanka Disaster Management Centre (http://www.dmc.gov.lk/index_english.htm), follow the advice of local authorities, and contact their travel agent or tour operator to determine whether the situation may impact their travel arrangements.  We recommend avoiding affected areas to the extent possible.
