Help flood victims as a Vesak ‘pinkama’
With weather patterns becoming unpredictable even with the use of hi-tech equipment, Sri Lanka is struggling through one of its worst-ever floods in recent decades. Experts say the extreme weather patterns and their unpredictable nature are largely the consequences of climate change and global warming. Till May 15 Sri Lanka was virtually boiling with temperatures reaching their hottest points in recorded history. But suddenly we were taken from one extreme to another with hundreds of thousands of people displaced, rivers and canals overflowing as are the major water reservoirs where sluice gates have been opened and millions of litres of water are going waste if not causing devastation. According to reports yesterday at least one thousand armed services personnel have been deployed for rescue and relief work. Among the worst affected places were the Kegalle district’s Aranayake and Bulathkohupitiya areas where boulders flattened at least two villages with more than hundred people still missing and feared dead. Government reports said 19 districts were severely affected by the heavy rains, storms and landslides. Even in Colombo residential areas, with rivers and canals overflowing, hundreds of residents were rescued by the Navy. One resident who had taken refuge upstairs said he had to come downstairs and swim to safety holding a rope thrown by the Navy so that he could reach the Navy boat. Military Spokesman Jayanath Jayaweera said yesterday that nearly 700 Army personnel including 40 officers had been deployed for relief and rescue work in the Aranayake and Bulathkohupitiya areas where hundreds were affected by landslides. He said nearly 200 Navy personnel had been deployed in the flood affected areas while the Air Force had deployed about 100 personnel mainly for life-saving operations. A Bell-212 helicopter and an MI-7 chopper were being used in this new battle against the terror of raging waters.
