BREAKING: At Least 151 DEAD- 2000 Military Personnel DEPLOYED- 500,000 EVACUATED, Here’s What We Know

Sri Lanka floods have left half a million people displaced

At least 151 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.

Over 2,000 military personnel have been deployed in the region to assist in the rescue efforts.

Many of the areas are impossible to bet to which is hampering the rescue efforts.

Sky News reports that the early rainy season downpours hit large parts of the country on Thursday, with some of the most affected areas in Kalutara, Ratnapura and Matara.

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.”

With more rains expected on Sunday and Monday, rescuers are racing against time to reach those affected.

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.

Absolutely devastating.
