Although the flood waters in Ratnapura,Galle and
Matara Districts and some parts of Colombo District have receded ,the cities which have beautiful surroundings before the floods and landslides occurred now looks like muddy spots it has been revealed.

After the receding of flood waters caused by overflowing of Kalu,Kelani,Gin and Nilwala rivers  it is the duty of the government now to bring back lives of people in these areas back to normalcy  by reconstructing  and building the damaged houses,roads,bridges,schools ,Temples and other institutions . Rehabilitating  the minds of those displaced and affected due to adverse weather is a need of the hour and it is a long term process .

Flood waters receded doesn't mean the lives of people back to normalcy.

It has been reported that some vehicles have been  washed away by flood waters to  drowned houses in Ratnapura and a number of bridges in Ratnapura and Galle have been destroyed due to adverse weather.

It is a sad scene to see the way school children in flood hit areas trying to dry their wet school books affected due to flood waters .

In most parts the country the cleaning of flood  hit places including houses and schools now began with the help of others.People are supporting each other in this regard too.

Now lots of organizations are collecting school items for the school children who lost their houses and school equipment including text books,school bags,pens and water bottles .It shows again the humanity of the  Sri Lankan society.
