Severe Floods Swamp Multiple Regions in Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Thailand

Severe flooding caused by northeast monsoon have left about 50,000 homeless in the north central and eastern Sri Lanka, while tens of thousands of others are being evacuated by the military.

The town of Batticaloa is the worst hit with more than 30,000 people displaced, officials have said.

The towns of Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa in the north central province, Sri Lanka’s largest rice-producing region, have experienced severe flooding as days of heavy rain forced the authorities to open the sluice gates on dozens of dams.

The floods have also washed away roads and railways throughout the affected regions.

Malaysia

Thousands of people have fled their homes from large areas in the states of Kelantan and Terengganu in NE Malaysia amid severe flooding.

Continued torrential rains in Kelantan and Terengganu, with moderate rains in other states across the Malaysian peninsula is expected throughout the holiday period, said the Malaysian Meteorological Department.

Floods have increased water levels above the danger point in six major rivers in Kelantan, said reports.

Thailand

The Narathiwat province, on the border with Malaysia, has been declared a disaster area, by the provincial disaster prevention and mitigation office, said reports.

Yala, Pattani and Songkhla provinces have also been declared disaster areas due to severe flooding.
