Extreme Monsoon Rains (EMR), Severe Flooding Devastate Large Swathes of Sri Lanka

Flooding and landslides have left dozens of people dead and tens of thousands of others displaced in western and central parts of Sri Lanka.

Severe flash flooding and mudslides triggered by unusually intense monsoon rains have toppled buildings and washed away bridges and destroyed much of the public infrastructure, forcing hundreds of school closures throughout the country, reports said.

The government has deployed both the navy and air force to help with rescue operations in the affected areas, said reports
