BREAKING: Over 200 DEAD

Dean James AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –
More than 200 people have been killed in massive floods and landslides in Sri Lanka and about half a million people have been left homeless.

The torrential rains are the worst to hit the country since 2003.

Thousands of homes have been completely destroyed since rains began swamping the southern and western areas of the Indian Ocean island nation last Friday.

Sri Lanka’s army, navy and air force are continuing relief and rescue efforts supported by divers and navy personnel who have arrived from India.

Mudslides have become common during Sri Lanka’s summer monsoon season as forests across the tropical Indian Ocean island nation have been cleared for export crops such as tea and rubber.

Health minister Rajitha Senaratne was quoted by local reports as saying: “A total of 493,455 people are now housed in 185 relief camps and health care facilities are being provided to them.”

In Galle, a city in the southwest that was badly hit by the 2004 tsunami, aerial footage showed enormous areas of flooding, with residents standing knee deep and rescuers distributing aid packages.

Tragic.
