Fishermen warned 

The meteorological department has predicted that there is a possibility of good rain in the coastal area for the next three days. An “Orange Alert” has been announced for August 8 and 9.

Rains with strong winds and sea swell are likely, it said.

As the sea is likely to be rough, the Joint Director of Fisheries warned the fishermen not to venture into the sea. The boats already out on fishing have been advised to return to shore immediately.
