‘Coloured rain’: AEA to conduct experiments
The Atomic Energy Authority (AEA) will conduct experiments to find
out the cause for the red and yellow rain experienced in several areas
in Sri Lanka in the recent past.
Sewanagala and Manampitiya experienced red rain in the middle of this
month. The Medical Research Institute commenced a study to ascertain the
reason for the “unusual rain” on the direction of Health Ministry
Secretary Dr Nihal Jayathilke.
The AEA is to conduct experiments to find out the reason for the red
rains by taking three water samples from Monaragala and Polonnaruwa, a
senior AEA official said.
