"Seek high land" - villagers told

[TamilNet, Monday, 04 January 1999, 18:12 GMT]
The Irrigation Engineer in charge of Muththayankaddu, in the Vanni region, has requested families living along Paeraaru banks to move to areas in higher land to safeguard their lives.

He has said that the heavy rains had caused the water levels in the irrigation reservoirs to rise and there is a danger of sudden floods. He has requested the displaced families who had sought refuge in huts erected along the banks of the Paeraaru banks to move to a safer area.

The water level of Muththayankaddu tank is 21. 4" and the sluice doors have been opened to maintain the water level, said sources in the Vanni.

Meanwhile government officials in Vavuniya said that the food convoy resumed the supply of essential food and other today. The food convoy came to a standstill for a week due to the heavy rain experienced in the region. Most of the roads have been washed away by the down pour of rains in the army controlled area and in the area controlled by the Liberation Tigers.

Due to the break in the service, there is a back log of about 100 lorry loads of various essential items in Vavuniya, the sources added.
