Spill water from reservoirs deluge villages in Mannaar

[TamilNet, Friday, 14 January 2011, 09:40 GMT]
With the opening of the floodgates of hundreds of reservoirs, the second largest river in the island, Aruviyaa’ru in spate has deluged many villages in the Mannaar district. Three villages in Madu division, Kugnchukku’lam, Maathaa-kiraamam and Periya-mu’rippu are completely cut off, marooning nearly 1230 villagers of 300 families. A cable-bridge, the only link of the villages with outside is completely inundated in the floodwaters. This never happened before in the last 50 years, people in Mannaar said. The new Government Agent for Mannaar arranged supplies to reach the village through a jungle track, but the crew was yet to reach the villages at the time of this report Thursday night.

40 houses are totally submerged under water by the spill water coming from the Giant’s Tank.

More than 200 people from another village, Thampanaikku’lam in Naanaaddaan division have sought refuge at the Kaddai-Adampan Roman Catholic School.

Paaliyaa’ru in spate in Maanthai West division also has caused many people to seek refuge at other places.
