But flood relief and other assistance are being provided to people in Sinhala DS divisions Gomarankadawela, Padavi Siripura and Seruwila. No such relief has been provided to Tamils affected by flood in Moothoor East and those uprooted people from Champoor now being sheltered in temporary tents.

The names and other details of those Tamil people affected by flood were collected by village level officers and were handed over to respective DS officers.
