At least 43 people have been killed and about 307,000 people displaced by the deadly floods, according to the government.

“At approximately 4.00 pm on Tuesday evening an entire side of the Siripura mountain collapsed into the valley below after receiving torrential rains for two consecutive days. The landslide buried three villages including Piyasenas,” said a report.

Some 220 families  lived in Siripura and the neighboring villages of Pallebage and Elagipitiya; however, only 19 bodies have been retrieved, so far, and hundreds remain missing.
