An emergency situation has been declared in Nuwera Eliya over the threat of landslides and floods, as a result of the inclement weather conditions, Nuwera Eliya Government Agent D. Kumarasiri told Daily Mirror online.

Over 60 families are currently sheltered in temporary centers as their houses have been completely destroyed due to the heavy rains and winds in the area, the official said.

Several roads leading up to the hill country have also been flooded and covered with excessive mud from landslides in the past few days.

“All the government officials in their respective centers in Nuwera Eliya have been told to monitor the situation and assist the families who have lost their homes. There are many roads which have been cut off as a result of large trees overturning and landslides. We are providing whatever we can to the families affected,” Kumarasiri said.

Strong winds and showers are continuing in the district and visitors to the area have been advised to take precautions. (Daily Mirror online)

    Does mahinda chinthanaya has provision for natural disasters? if not, high time focussing on such impending national disaster! which too would be very costly, without any foreign funding.

    There is a minister of Disaster Management, but hope there is a huge allocation of funds, as the cost of nature's secrets are collossal.

    After reading many comments here and other news items regarding weather, I think that many people (readers) miss exciting stories on politics or war or violence. In absence of those stories - comparing to last years- they take whatever the chance to relieve their political thoughts.

    GOD, help us!
