Stormy weather in Maldives capital city - Mohamed Anil

Maldives Meteorological Service has on Thursday issued a white alert over Huvadhu atoll following a prediction of heavy rain showers over the area.

The department issues the white alert close to 10pm on Thursday and predicted heavy rain and thunderstorms to prevail over Gaaf Dhaal atoll in southward of Maldives.

MET issued the white alert from 09:30pm to 02:30am.

On Thursday, the department predicted scattered rain and a few heavy showers with thunderstorms to prevail over southern atolls.

This comes at a time the Health Protection Agency had warned the public to take measures for possible health risks that could surface due to the sweltering heat experienced across Maldives within the past week.

While the white alert has been issued over southern Maldives, the capital city still continues to experience hot weather.
