Oh! Over 260,000 affected by floods in Sri Lanka - 05-18-2010, 08:23 PM

Floods caused by the torrential rains lashing the southwestern areas of the island for the past few days have affected over 260,000 people in Sri Lanka, national Disaster Management Center said.

According to the figures released today by the Disaster Management Center 6,332 families had been affected by floods in the Kalutara district while 27,691 families were affected in the Gampaha District. In Colombo district 20,504 families have been affected. Ratnapura, Kegalle, Kurunegala, and Puttalam districts have also been affected by the floods to a lesser extent, the DMC reported.

The Secretary of the Ministry of Disaster Management S.A. Mohammed said that two persons were killed, three were disappeared, and six were injured in accidents related to the rains.
The DMC said relief is being distributed the affected areas. Sri Lanka Navy has provided 9 motor boats, 6 boats in Gampaha and 3 in Colombo districts for relief services as most of the roads remain inundated.

Sri Lanka government says it will provide an allowance for the victims of the floods. The Minister of Disaster Management A.H.M. Fowzie said that the government had allocated over eight million rupees to provide relief to the flood and landslide affected people.

A family of five is provided Rs. 525 while a family of one person is provided Rs. 245. Rs. 50,000 is paid for the repair of a damaged house while Rs. 25,000 is paid for a half-damaged house, a spokesman of the Ministry said.
