Boru­pana af­fected by floods

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - FEATURES -

Boru­pana area in Moratuwa, which had not ex­pe­ri­enced any flood sit­u­a­tion dur­ing the re­cent great del­uge, is now fac­ing a flood sit­u­a­tion even af­ter a mi­nor shower.

The res­i­dents claim that this sce­nario is the re­sult of the hap­haz­ard fill­ing of the Weras

Ganga near the Karadiyana garbage dump, caus­ing their dwellings to be sub­merged by flood wa­ters. With the in­ces­sant rains 12 Grama Seva di­vi­sions in Moratuwa had been af­fected by floods and 3782 res­i­dents have been dis­placed.
