“No one to operate equipment that spots trees at risk”



Although the Colombo Municipal Council is in possession of equipment to identify trees at risk of falling, there is no one to operate it, Municipal Commissioner Badrani Jayawardena has said.

She was speaking to reporters over 36 incidents of uprooted and damaged trees in Colombo yesterday evening (07), as the capital was struck by another bout of adverse weather.

One person was hospitalised with injuries after a tree had fallen onto a vehicle at the R.A. de Mel Mawatha in Colombo.
