Flood in Sri Lanka

Floods caused by monsoon rains were reported in several areas in the western part of Sri Lanka. As heavy rains swept across the country on Sunday, Sri Lanka's Disaster Management Center (DMC) issued a major flood alert in Sitawaka, located on the outskirts of the capital city, Colombo. Several other areas of the island have also been impacted, leading to power supplies being switched off in the affected regions.

The Irrigation Department reported that due to the heavy rains, water levels of the Kelani River and the Gin River in the south of Sri Lanka had reached spill levels. Strong winds took down trees in many areas, resulting in the loss of nine people.

Sri Lanka's military has deployed 10 Navy teams and will be adding a further 116. The army is providing food to displaced people, and three helicopters have been deployed to assist with relief efforts.
